The Workshop is part of a series of MPCA workshops being held across the state. From a Maryland Planning Blog article (2019-05-01) on the first workshop that was held in Hagerstown on March 29:
Close to 40 citizen and professional planners participated in an event designed to bring key sessions from the annual conference out to planners in Western Maryland….Staff video-taped the workshop, which will be provided as a website resource. The MPCA received significant positive feedback about the event and will be conducting another workshop in Annapolis on July 19th.
