The Results Are In! View Insights from the Compatible Use Website and Handbook User Experience Survey

Planning in Progress

by Sarah Diehl, AICP, Compatible Use Community Planning Liaison

In October 2021, Planning Practice Monthly shared a survey in which participants could give feedback on the state’s military installations and their relationship with surrounding communities. The purpose of this survey was to help gain information about how communities interact with, seek information about, and envision development that is compatible with military bases in their area.

The Maryland Department of Planning (Planning) would like to thank everyone who took the time to participate in and share this survey and invites you to view the results.

The insights provided by participant responses will be invaluable in supporting the development of the state’s first compatible use website and handbook that will educate, inform, and guide state, local and military leaders, as well as community organizations, on compatible use issues and solutions.

Most importantly, the considerable input received will help to strengthen communication and coordination between Maryland’s military installations and surrounding communities and we, at Planning, look forward to our role in that effort.
