Odenton Town Center

The Odenton Town Center is one of three Town Centers within the County. The OTC Master Plan provides planning and implementation guidance for development, the protection of natural resources, efficient transportation networks, a sustainable community, a vibrant economy, and provides a basis for planning public expenditures needed to support future growth.

Maryland Department of Planning's Compatible Use Website & Handbook Development - Survey now live!

Do you live or work near one of Maryland’s 20 military facilities? Are you interested in the military presence across the state? The Maryland Department of Planning wants to hear from you! They have created an online survey to learn how community members interact with, seek information about, and envision compatible development between the state’s military installations and surrounding communities now and in the future. Results from this survey will influence the development of the state’s first compatible use website and handbook. These resources will be important tools for state, local, and military leaders, as well as community organizations to help guide compatible development and strengthen relationships between Maryland’s military installations and surrounding communities. The survey is open now through December 17, 2021. Help them get the word out by sharing with your networks and other stakeholders across the state.
