  • A Planning Board Meeting was previously scheduled for May 16, but has been canceled.

Comprehensive Zoning Map Process 2020

The Comprehensive Zoning Map Process (CZMP) takes place every four years on an exact schedule specified in the County Code. Any citizen may request a zoning change on any property in Baltimore County, although the usual participants in the process are individual landowners, contract purchasers, community organizations, County staff, the Planning Board and the County Council.

The CZMP covers a period of approximately 12 months and results in zoning decisions that are reflected in a final log of issues. Ultimately, the County Council decides on each issue whether to retain the existing zoning or to enact a different zone(s) or district(s). Generally, each issue is a single property, but an issue might cover many adjoining properties and may even cover many hundreds of acres. The zoning on all properties which were not issues is reenacted without change.

CZMP 2020 starts with the public filing period that begins on September 3. Additional information about the process, including filing dates, fees and hearing schedules will be posted when available.

For more information, please visit the CZMP page.

Beechfield Avenue and Maryland Place

The Department of Public Works plans to remove some pavement and to narrow the intersection of Beechfield Avenue and Maryland Place in Arbutus this year. The modifications should improve traffic operations, say engineers.

Information: Email engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov or call the Division of Highway Design at 410-887-3739.

River Road Bridge Reconstruction

River Road Bridge (B-0184) was severely damaged during the May 2018 flood that hit both Baltimore and Howard counties. River Road was immediately closed to traffic and contractors then demolished the remaining structure in the weeks following the storm. The Department of Public Works has been planning a replacement bridge and County engineers expect construction to be completed later this year. Engineers have started ordering materials for the new span.

Information: Email engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Thistle Road Slope Repair and Road Reconstruction

Thistle Road was also closed because of the 2018 flood, but residential access has remained open for the northern part of the road. Repairs began in March and a reopening is expected in June.

Information: Email engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Louisiana Avenue

Baltimore County is adding curb and gutters along both sides of Louisiana Avenue in English Consul from Washington Street to Baltimore Street. The work is expected to begin in the fall following water utility work, which has been completed at the site.

Information: Email engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.

New Water Line on Powers Lane

Baltimore County is investing $3.5 million to improve the water system in the Catonsville area. Three thousand feet of new water main is being constructed between the Catonsville pumping station and Nuwood Drive. The new main, which will be 36 inches in diameter, will improve the reliability of the system and will be finished in the spring. The project is 98 percent complete.
