The Baltimore Green Network Plan will be a collective vision for Baltimore to revitalize communities by creating an interconnected system of greenspaces throughout the city. The planning process will bring together City agencies, residents, neighborhood partners and Baltimore businesses to transform vacant properties into community assets such as recreation areas, trails, and urban gardens. By targeting resources towards areas of blight and underinvestment, the Plan will increase opportunity, create safe and healthy spaces, and support economic development.  The final Plan will be a vision for vibrant green open spaces and corridors connecting the entire city and laying the foundation for the revitalization of some of Baltimore’s most challenged neighborhoods.

The Department of Planning and Office of Sustainability will lead the project with the help of a multi-disciplinary consultant team, who will lend specialized planning assistance to the effort. This team of locally based consultants will be led by environmental planning firm Biohabitats. The consultant team also includes team members from the firms of Floura Teeter, Advanced Placemaking, Living Design Lab, and Toole Design Group. Together, they will apply their knowledge of environmental planning, park and open space planning, pedestrian and bicycle planning, land use and real estate analysis, and social equity to developing Baltimore’s Green Network Plan.
