The Maryland Department of Planning (Planning) would again like to thank everyone who participated in the listening sessions in Howard County. Planning wants to keep the dialogue open throughout the A Better Maryland process, and one way of doing that is by posting summary notes of what we heard on the project website. We will post similar summaries for all 23 counties and Baltimore City. The Howard County notes are now available at:

We look forward to continuing the discussion with all Marylanders. If you have any questions or would like to make additional comments, please contact Chuck Boyd at or Joe Griffiths at
