Web Site of the Week:Maryland Department of Planning

A state planning website might not sound like the most fascinating site out there, but the Maryland Department of Planning (MDP) proves all doubters wrong. The site is replete with interesting planning documents, information on sustainable communities in the Old Line State, and general information for other planners across the United States. On their homepage, visitors can learn about their work in the area of “smart growth”, which includes providing publications and fact sheets on the costs of sprawl, public school construction, and transportation planning. Also on the homepage is the “Planning Issues in the News” section, which contains press releases on Maryland’s demographics, urban planning, along with international and local planning news from the Baltimore Sun and Planetizen. Finally the site also includes a link to the “PlanMaryland” site and the data center which will be of particular interest to planning professionals and policy folks. [KMG]
