After soliciting input from the public since 2017, Anne Arundel County has drafted goals and a land use plan to shape development in the county and is seeking feedback from citizens. The county has developed innovative technology where residents can review draft elements of Plan2040 and provide comments through a website.

To help guide citizens through this new technology, County Executive Steuart Pittman will host three town halls with the Anne Arundel County Office of Planning and Zoning to demonstrate how to use the tool and answer questions about its functionality.

Plan2040 has been set up to help guide county policy around affordable housing, traffic, environmental protection and more for the next 20 years. While residents are free to attend any session, the county will be using specific examples per regional planning area, depending on the date. They are as follows:

Aug. 17 | 6 to 7 p.m. | Regional Areas 1, 2 and 3

Aug. 19 | 6 to 7 p.m.| Regional Areas 4, 5 and 6

Aug. 20 | 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. | Regional Areas 7, 8 and 9
