Area Plan (Archived)
This document from 2014 (now archived) was created in partnership with USDA and was our Area Plan for 2009-2014. As of 2014 it is no longer a required document.
The Area Plan, or long-range strategic plan, was responsive to community-identified needs specific to the four-county area, or Development Area, served by Southern Maryland RC&D. It was developed through a public process to ensure that the unique needs and opportunities in our Development Area were fully addressed. We solicited public input through surveys and later through involvement in a workshop to form Goals, Objectives, and Strategies from the survey responses. A committee of Board Members, with assistance from the RC&D Coordinator, worked hard to facilitate the public process and ultimately develop the Area Plan.
