Planning Academy

                         Planning Academy

The Department of Planning launched a FREE six-week Planning Academy in Fall 2018 for community residents.

The Baltimore Planning Academy is a six-week course that will cover in-depth the zoning and development process specific to Baltimore City. The class will be organized twice a year - in April and September. The next application period will open in Summer 2019.

Over six weeks, Academy participants will participate in core course sessions, a session to promote or “pitch” a community project for feedback and a graduation ceremony. Each session will cover a different aspect of urban planning and development in Baltimore, and will include interactive group activities and panel discussions. The course will be kept small (up to 30 participants) to encourage interaction and learning among participants, facilitators, and instructors.
