The purpose of this project is to cover all articles related to the U.S. state of Maryland. It should also serve as a hub for other more specific projects related to Maryland (such as Roads in Maryland). From this project, contributors will find links to the subprojects, and information for contributing to topics that do not yet have a subproject. This project is also responsible for the maintenance of the Maryland portal.

Robust Maryland Economy and Development Pages[edit]

Robust economy sections pertaining to the State of Maryland's cities, towns and unincorporated areas. Many are lack luster or have none at all, a list of organizations would be a good start.

I'm dubious that the coordinates in question were correct. Mangoe (talk) 19:38, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
According to, the bridge status is "Removed completely, piers visible on google & bing maps". Perhaps they were visible in prior map versions. —ADavidB 15:57, 29 April 2014 (UTC)
Ah, looking at topo maps shows the coordinates are close enough and that the bridge is not there anymore. Mangoe (talk) 16:31, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

Ongoing tasks[edit]

This section is for ongoing tasks

Adopt an article[edit]

Similar to the Collaboration of the week, but on a smaller scale, you might want to "adopt" an article. This would involve doing the research, writing, and picture-taking (if possible) for either a non-existent article or a stub. Of course, everyone else can still edit an adopted article, and you can work on other things too, but the idea is to find a focus for a while, to try and build up the number of quality articles the Project has produced.


Project banner[edit]

{{WikiProject Maryland|class=|importance=}} should be placed on the talk pages of relevant articles to put them under the project's radar. It looks like this:

NOTE: Stubs are managed by the Stub-sorting WikiProject. Before creating a new stub, you should propose it at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Proposals.
