For the Cumberland Times-News Cumberland Times-News

— CUMBERLAND — People who are interested in PlanMaryland are invited to two workshops to discuss incorporating the economic development interests of Western Maryland into the first state development plan.

The Sustainable Transformation of the Appalachian Region Project, in partnership with The Greater Cumberland Committee, the National Center for Smart Growth and the University of Maryland Extension, will host the workshops.

The first workshop is scheduled for Thursday at the Will O’ The Wisp Restaurant in McHenry; the second workshop will be held June 4 at the Cumberland Country Club. Both workshops will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with lunch provided.

Gerrit Knapp, University of Maryland Extension, and Jason Sartori, Integrated Planning Consultants, will serve as facilitators.

Through funding made possible by the Appalachian Regional Commission, the primary objective of the STAR project team is to prepare a primer for economic development planning for Western Maryland.

The workshops are sponsored with no charge to the general public by TGCC, University of Maryland Extension, Garrett County Department of Economic Development and Chamber of Commerce, and the Western Maryland Health System.

Reservations should be made by Wednesday by contacting Juli McCoy at 301-722-0090 or jmccoy@greatercc.org.

The STAR website, http://smartgrowth.umd.edu/starproject.html, contains data that will help facilitate workshop discussions.
