Welcome to the PLANnapolis list serv.

It's a historic year for Maryland's preservation movement. This year the Conference will celebrate two anniversaries, the 80th Anniversary of Preservation Maryland and the 50th Anniversary of the Maryland Historical Trust. While we will reflect on these organizations pasts, these anniversaries also give us the chance to look to the future.  Annapolis provides a scenic and richly historic setting for presentations on smart growth, community revitalization, and building partnerships. As always, we will finish the Conference with a toast to exceptional preservation work at the Maryland Historical Trust's Annual Awards.
