Our Mission

Throughout 80 plus years of service, The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission has endeavored to improve the quality of life for all of the citizens of the bi-county area it serves and of the communities in which these citizens live, work and raise their families. This mission is embodied in three major program areas. These major program areas respond to the vision of our founders and are incorporated into our charter. The Mission of The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission is to:

  • Manage physical growth and plan communities
  • Protect and steward natural, cultural and historic resources
  • Provide leisure and recreational experiences.
