Comprehensive Plan & Climate Action Plan Universal Advisory Council Application
Thanks you for your interest in shaping a better Baltimore! We invite you to apply for consideration for one or both of the following citywide planning efforts:
After the finalization of the 2020 Census, Maryland counties and the City of Baltimore must update their comprehensive plans. A comprehensive plan (comp plan) serves as a guide to public and private actions regarding the development of public and private property. A robust comp plan will cover diverse issues like: land use, transportation, housing, water resources and community facilities. The comp plan's Advisory Council will be composed of residents, government officials and non-governmental stakeholders providing input on the entire planning process including public engagement and visioning.
CLIMATE ACTION PLAN
The Baltimore Office of Sustainability is developing an equitable public engagement strategy to support the update of the City's 2012 Climate Action Plan (CAP Update). The goals of the CAP Update include: 1) accelerating local climate awareness and action; 2) strengthening climate planning and policy connections; 3) evaluating new and ambitious greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets; and 4) integrating and prioritizing high impact GHG emissions reductions strategies and priority mitigation and adaptation actions from other City plans. A Resident Advisory Council will play an important role in directly supporting the development of the public engagement and plan update strategy.
