Convening regularly for the purpose of sharing ideas on smart and sustainable growth
Maryland is projected to grow by over 1,000,000 new residents by the year 2030. Between now and 2015, BRAC will bring over 25,000 new households to the State.
From environmental protection and resource conservation to neighborhood revitalization and transportation, growth and community character is on the minds of every jurisdiction.
The Maryland Planning Directors Roundtable brings together the planning leadership from across the State. The Roundtable allows counties and municipalities, rural and urban jurisdictions alike, to talk about the challenges relating to sustainable growth and to share experiences and ideas and planning best practices.
The Maryland Planning Directors Roundtable is open to all planning officials in Maryland’s 23 counties and 157 municipalities. Meetings are held every three months.
