Average citizens--the very people affected by city zoning and development decisions --are often in the dark about how to take part in the discussions that shape their neighborhoods. To help residents have a voice at the table, The Department of Planning is launching the Baltimore Planning Academy. We talk with Stephanie Smith, Assistant Director for ‘Equity, Engagement and Communications … and City Planner Martin French to learn why informed engagement is important.

Get a preview of the Planning Academy content Saturday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Baltimore Museum of Art's Open Hours: Removing Racism from the Structure.
