The Baltimore Metropolitan Council was created in 1992 as the regional planning agency for metropolitan Baltimore (Chapter 201, Acts of 1992). Replacing the Baltimore Regional Council of Governments, the Council promotes cooperation among local governments in the Baltimore metropolitan area to share information, collect data, and solve common problems. It also anticipates future needs in infrastructure, the environment, and economic development. Under formal agreements among its members, the Council provides regional planning for solid waste management and transportation.

The Council is composed of the Mayor of Baltimore; county executives of Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Harford and Howard counties, Maryland; and a Carroll County commissioner (Code 1957, Art. 78D, secs. 1-7).



Chair (chosen by Council): C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger, Baltimore County Executive

Ex officio: Janet S. Owens, Anne Arundel County Executive; Martin J. O'Malley, Mayor of Baltimore; C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger III, Baltimore County Executive; Julia W. Gouge, President, Carroll County Board of County Commissioners; James M. Harkins, Harford County Executive; James N. Robey, Howard County Executive.


Mary A. Logan, Coordinator (410) 333-4881

The Baltimore Metropolitan Council operates the Regional Information Center, an urban planning and regional library associated with the Enoch Pratt Free Library. The Center provides data on demographic and economic trends, transportation issues, environmental management, waste management, and water quality.
