The Chesapeake Science and Security Corridor’s (CSSC) myReGIS application was designed to serve three states, seven counties, and countless municipalities in addressing the complex land use planning needs associated with Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) at Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG). In addition, myReGIS is a tool being used by new and existing BRAC impacted businesses and residents to identify quality of life elements such as growth areas, available services, transportation needs, education institutions, etc. Regional land use planning data featured in this application helps support the APG mission and strengthens the CSSC’s relationship with the installation, regional planners, and residents.

Maryland’s Department of Housing and Community Development’s (DHCD) Housing Mapper was designed to help identify information concerning Smart Growth Areas and various other State designations in a quick and easy fashion. Information sometimes varies from program to program, and applicants for DHCD programs often had to track down designations through sister State agencies. Housing Mapper will significantly streamline and consolidate these processes by enabling a user to input a specific street address to receive immediate information on whether the location or applicant is in a designated area and DHCD program eligibility.
DHCD Mapper also includes a Multifamily Proximity Report. This tool allows users to input an address and a distance radius to generate a map detailing the location of all DHCD multifamily rental housing projects in that user-defined area. The Multifamily Proximity Report is intended to provide rental housing developers a snapshot of the State-funded rental housing available in a given area in order to assist them in deciding upon appropriate site locations for proposed projects.
Maryland’s GrowthPrint map attempts to address the question “What are the most appropriate land areas for redevelopment and/or revitalization, infill and future growth?” This is an effort to keep with the principals of “Smart Growth” by guiding development to areas that already contain the infrastructure to support that development.
PlanMaryland is the State’s first comprehensive plan targeted towards sustainable growth and development. The PlanMaryland Citizen Input map provides Maryland residents and other stakeholders with an opportunity to visualize PlanMaryland data and provide comments about areas within Maryland, as it relates to the draft version of the comprehensive plan. User input is directed through a combination of predefined questions as well as a free standing area for additional discussions. These inputs are identified on the map via marker symbols, specific to the user’s response. Additional data layers are also provided as reference material.
Maryland has allocated $7.55 billion from the American Recover and Reinvestment Act (Stimulus). This map show where the funds have been allocated by county. The user can select from the different types of projects and see where individual projects, such as roadway improvements, have occurred. Summary graphs, descriptive information and need is also provided.
