September 23, 2008

The Maryland Department of Planning (MDP) and the Task Force on the Future for Growth and Development in Maryland are hosting a public forum for the Western Maryland region for residents to share their thoughts and ideas on future growth in the state.

The Smart Growth Listening Session is scheduled for Thursday at the Bridge of Life Church at 14 S. Potomac St. in Hagerstown. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. and is open to all citizens.

Growth-related topics to be discussed include smart sustainable growth; the environment; housing; and public facilities, such as roads, schools, and water and sewer. The session is designed like a town hall meeting with open discussion on these matters.

Dr. Jonathan Gibralter, president of Frostburg State University, will serve as moderator for the session.
