Baltimore's Comprehensive Planning Process Launching in April; Seeking Partners Now!

The Department of Planning is starting work on a Comprehensive Plan, Our Baltimore, with a public launch planned for April. 

Baltimore’s next Comprehensive Plan will guide equitable neighborhood development over the next 10 years and beyond.  

The Comprehensive Plan asks, how can we make Baltimore a desirable place so that our residents: 

  • Want to stay 

  • Benefit from staying 

  • Invite  their family and friends to live in Baltimore 

In advance of our public launch, we are looking for Baltimore organizations and residents to lead engagement. We have a range of opportunities coming up to get involved.  

Community-based organizations – we invite you to join our engagement leadership team. 

Members of this team will form a network of community-based organizations from across Baltimore. Each will design and implement an engagement strategy that fits the needs of the community they serve and know. More information: https://planning.baltimorecity.gov/planning-master-plan

**Additional Opportunities to Get Involved Coming Soon** 

Community Design Fellows: This part-time opportunity is for Baltimore-based students and other community members interested in exploring an urban planning career pathway. A focus of this fellowship will be engaging the youth voice. More information will be posted on our career page in February 2022.  

Resident Storytelling Ambassadors: This effort aims to amplify community voices. More information forthcoming in March 2022.
