Why do we need PlanMaryland?
Because sustainable quality of life in our communities and rural areas is at stake.
Because we are on track to lose approximately 560,00 acres to development by 2030
The 560,000 acres of projected growth is equal to an area the size of:
- 175 Antietam National Battlefields
- 40 Patapsco State Parks
- 14 Assateague Islands
- 112 Cunningham Falls State Parks
- 84 Patuxent River State Parks
- 144 Deep Creek Lakes
Or, roughly, the equivalent of the total land area of Anne Arundel and Prince Georgeís Counties combined.
PlanMaryland is, ultimately, a plan for a more livable, greener, healthier and sustainable Maryland.
