Maryland Departments of Commerce and Planning Develop Compatible Use Project Website

Planning in Progress 

by Joe Griffiths, AICP, Local Assistance and Training Manager

Previous editions of Planning Practice Monthly have included articles about the collaboration between the Maryland Departments of Commerce (Commerce) and Planning (Planning) on the Maryland Military & Civilian Compatible Use Project. 

To learn more, please check out this month’s Meet the Staff article featuring Sarah Diehl, Planning’s Compatible Use Community Planning Liaison. Now you can review project objectives and progress in one place on Commerce’s new Maryland Military & Civilian Compatible Use Project webpage.   

The webpage includes a description of the project’s purpose, including the already completed Phase 1, which led to the publication of the Statewide Joint Land Use Response Implementation Strategy (SJRIS) in 2019. It also includes informative fact sheets on compatible use issues, links to Compatible use Studies for Maryland Military Installations, a project timeline, rosters and meeting materials for three stakeholder workgroups, and further resources supporting the project and explaining the concept of compatible use. The project is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Defense’s Office of Local Defense Community Cooperation.  

To learn more about the project or get engaged, please contact Sarah Diehl or Jenny Chiasson, Grants Program Manager for Commerce.
