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 may cover many adjoining properties and might 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.

Old Court Road at Park Heights Avenue

Baltimore County is planning to remove part of the existing median in Old Court Road at the Park Heights Avenue intersection to extend the left turn bay. The work is expected to be done this year.

Water Line Replacement on Lake Avenue

Baltimore County is replacing a section of old cast-iron water pipe on Lake Avenue between Falls Road and Lakehurst Drive. Work began in January. The old line, which dates from the 1920s, has failed frequently in recent years and will be replaced with ductile iron pipe. The project, estimated to cost $1.5 million, is 40 percent complete. The project should be finished by the early summer.

Sewers: Jones Falls Structural Rehabilitation Phase 1

Baltimore County began rehabilitating 66,000 feet of sewer line in 2017 throughout Council Districts 2 and 5. The project was planned to take a year and a half and will cost $3,393,583.60. It is now 99 percent complete.
