Urban Design Assistance Team (UDAT)
The Department of Planning has participated in UDATs for four communities. These are the findings and recommendations from those UDATs: Dundalk, Randallstown (PDF), Essex-Middle River (PDF), and Towson.
The term Charrette is used to describe a high speed, intensive planning session in which a Community Design Team concentrates on specific design problems with citizens and presents solutions. The Department of Planning has led Charrettes for three communities: The Lower Back River Neck Post Charrette Presentation (PDF), Reisterstown Charrette, Turner Station Charrette (PDF)
Red Line Transit Project
The proposed Red Line is a 14.5 mile, east-west transit line connecting the areas of Woodlawn, Edmondson Village, West Baltimore, downtown Baltimore, Inner Harbor East, Fells Point, Canton and the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center Campus.
When constructed, the Red Line will be a Light Rail Transit (LRT) line that runs mostly as a dedicated surface transit-way in the median of existing roads with tunneling under Cooks Lane, downtown and Fells Point. The Red Line would provide enhanced mobility and connecting service to Baltimore's existing transit systems: MARC commuter service, metro, light rail, and local and commuter bus routes and would serve major employers such as the Social Security Administration, the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS), and the downtown Central Business District.

The Baltimore County Planning Board adopted the Red Line Transit Corridor Technical Report (PDF), which address land use matters around the four proposed stations in Baltimore County. If you have additional questions, please contact Jeff Mayhew at 410-887-3480.
North Point Peninsula Community Plan
A community wide survey was conducted in 2004 by the North Point Peninsula Community Coordinating Council (NPPCCC). Based on the results of the survey, a revitalization checklist for both strategic short and long term planning by the NPPCCC and Baltimore County Government was prepared.
