Take the Compatible Use Website and Handbook User Experience Survey
Do you live or work near one of Maryland’s 20 military facilities? Are you interested in the military presence across the state? We want to hear from you! The Maryland Department of Planning has created an online survey to learn how community members interact with, seek information about, and envision compatible development between the state’s military installations and surrounding communities now and in the future. Results from this survey will influence the development of the state’s first compatible use website and handbook. These resources will be important tools for state, local, and military leaders, as well as community organizations to help guide compatible development and strengthen relationships between Maryland’s military installations and surrounding communities. The survey is open now through December 17, 2021. Help us get the word out by sharing with your networks and other stakeholders across the state. Take the Survey Here
