VPC office at 118 W. Pennsylvania Ave. Towson

The Valleys Planning Council is sustained by its members and other generous individuals, corporations, foundations, as well as those who have made provisions in their estates.  Contributors share the belief that conserving the land and resources, preserving the historic character, and maintaining the rural feel in the county is important, not only to Baltimore County, but to the state as a whole. They share a commitment to ensuring that future generations can appreciate and enjoy the beauty of the Valleys. They know and value the need for continued environmental stewardship for the benefit of all. We welcome you as a partner!

Membership in the VPC elevates your role as a stakeholder in preserving the rural lands of Baltimore County and its land use outcomes. You join other members who, over the years, have come to experience the positive impact of environmental stewardship led by the VPC.

In order to engage the next generation of conservation minded leaders who care about preserving open space in the valleys, the VPC has added a new level of giving, “Young Associate” (up to $50). The Young Associates will meet periodically to plan events.
