An Update from the Office of Community Engagement and Constituent Services (CECS)
Dear Community Leaders and Members of Anne Arundel County,

After soliciting input from the public since 2017, the County has drafted Goals and a Land Use Plan to shape development in Anne Arundel County and we want your feedback! The County has developed innovative technology where you can review draft elements of Plan2040 and provide comments through an interactive website.

To help guide you through this new technology, County Executive Pittman will host three Town Halls with the Office of Planning and Zoning. They’ll demonstrate how to use the tool and answer any questions about its functionality. This is your opportunity to help guide County policy around affordable housing, traffic, environmental protection and so much more for the next 20 years. 

While you are free to attend any session, we will be using specific examples per regional planning area depending on the date. We hope that you find this format to be engaging and meaningful.

  • August 17th Town Hall | 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. | Regional Areas 1, 2, and 3.
  • August 19th Town Hall | 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.| Regional Areas 4, 5, and 6.
  • August 20th Town Hall | 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. | Regional Areas 7, 8, and 9.
