Make your voice heard!
Baltimore is creating a plan to improve the quality of life in Baltimore now and for generations to come. Participate in a series of community conversations to discuss ideas for a better Baltimore!
In spring 2008, Mayor Sheila Dixon formed the Baltimore Commission on Sustainability, representing neighborhoods, nonprofits, institutions, and businesses, to plan for the future of Baltimore. The Commission on Sustainability holds public meetings the fourth Tuesday of every month at 4 pm at the Baltimore City Planning Department, 417 E. Fayette Street, 8th Floor.
The Commission’s Next Public Presentation Meeting is Tuesday, October 28, 6:30 at Baltimore Polytechnic Institute Auditorium, 1400 W. Cold Spring Lane.
Please Join Us
The Commission has formed six Working Groups that will host public community conversations for you to voice your ideas on the future of Baltimore in the following areas:
