3Β Easy Ways to Get Involved in Community Planning

Open Community Discussions

The open community forum on GarrettPlan.org allows anyone who lives, works, or plays in Garrett County, Maryland to openly discuss issues, successes, and anything else! The discussions on the community forum supplement Garrett County’s Community Health Improvement Plan.

Organize Action Groups

Once you’ve found others who share your passions, organize a group to tackle issues in our community! Groups on GarrettPlan.org can contain a specific strategy, host a collaborative space, and much more! The work and strategies outlined in this application form the basis of our Community Health Improvement Plan.

Data Analysis Portal

Once we’ve implemented the strategies in our action groups and tabulated the results,Β our county’s strategic planning organizers will be able to compare data and metrics to determine the effectiveness of community initiatives, and report on our successes. Coming soon!
