City of Baltimore: Planning Academy – Application Open June 18-July 27

Baltimore’s Department of Planning is excited to announce that we are launching our inaugural Planning Academy this Fall and the application is open as of June 18, 2018!

We are seeking applicants like YOU to apply. Visit https://www.baltimoreplanningacademy.com/ to learn more and apply by July 27, 2018.

WHAT DOES THE COURSE COVER?

The Baltimore Planning Academy is a six-week FREE course that will cover in-depth the zoning and development process specific to Baltimore City. Our mission is to build community leadership around urban planning, policy and development issues through a Baltimore lens.

WHY A PLANNING ACADEMY?

Baltimore is a city of neighborhoods – nearly 300 – that have their own rich histories, cultures and relationships to the planning process.

Baltimore Department of Planning recognizes our need to build trust, improve community engagement and increase resident understanding of our role and resources.

Through the Planning Academy, we want to connect residents to Baltimore’s Planning Department, to other resources in City government, and to each other.

WHO SHOULD APPLY?

You! Baltimore City residents who want to increase their understanding of urban planning in order to improve their communities.

We are seeking engaged community members of all ages to join our inaugural cohort. You do not need a background in urban planning or development to participate – just enthusiasm, curiosity and interest!
