Fast Track

Find out if your project is eligible to be FastTracked through the red tape.The newest tool of Governor O’Malley’s Maryland Made Easy initiative,FastTrack is designed to expedite state review of qualifying development projects to promote economic development, job creation, and smart growth.Projects approved for FastTrack will have the benefit of a concurrent and coordinated review by all relevant state agencies for any necessary state permits, allowing for the identification of any possible permitting or approval issues early in the development process. Additionally, FastTrack projects will be assigned a contact person to help guide them through the permit application process.

FastTrack cannot expedite federal or local permits or approvals. Local jurisdictions with approval authority over the project will be invited to participate in a FastTrack review, but the local jurisdiction cannot be required to take part in any state coordinated review.
