Lenny Moore Way
Resource Drive in Randallstown – now also known as Lenny Moore Way – is the entrance road that leads from Liberty Road to the Baltimore County complex housing the Randallstown Community Center, the Liberty Senior Center and other County offices.
"We thought that this would be the perfect spot to dedicate to Lenny Moore because it is a place where people young and old gather to enjoy sports, fitness and good fellowship – all of which have been central themes throughout Mr. Moore's career and lifetime," said Fourth District Councilman Ken Oliver.
