Sarah Lipkin Sularz joined the Maryland Department of Planning in February 2019 as a Regional Planner for Southern Maryland. Sarah Studied landscape architecture at the University of Minnesota and is currently en route to obtaining her professional license. Prior to relocating to Maryland from Minnesota, she worked as a Landscape Architect in a multidisciplinary engineering firm where she specialized in multimodal transportation design with an interest in green infrastructure. As part of her role with Planning, Sarah has been working with the Maryland Planning Commission Association (MPCA) by assisting with and planning regional workshops, video production, promotions, and otherwise enthusiastically supporting the organization.
Sarah speaks Spanish and has travelled to more than a dozen countries, including Cuba (legally, she swears!) and is currently learning to play the harmonica. As a new Baltimore City resident, she has chosen to not own a car. Sarah enjoys biking, hiking in Gunpowder Falls State Park and says she fell in love with this region’s native flowering redbuds (cercis canendensis) this spring.
Welcome to both Maryland and Planning, Sarah!
