County Land Preservation Agricultural Easement Inspection

Baltimore County Land Preservation has completed the first round of its annual agricultural easement inspection cycle. In accordance with easement documents and their overseeing agencies, it’s required that a percentage of all easement inspections be completed each year. The County is responsible for inspecting federal (Farm and Ranch Lands Protection Program), state (Maryland Agricultural Land Preservation Foundation Program) and local easements. Eighteen of 22 federal inspections, 23 of 23 state inspections and four of 19 local inspections have been completed. During an inspection, the County looks for issues such as dumping, major erosion, special uses guidelines and that no new dwellings have been constructed. The remaining inspections will be completed throughout the rest of 2019.

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 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 pre-filing period that begins on August 19. Filing fees and a timeline are posted online. Additional information about the process, including hearing schedules, will be posted when available.

For more information, please visit the CZMP page.

Milford Mill Road Bridge Over Gwynns Falls

The Milford Mill Road Bridge (Bridge B-0076) will be rehabilitated this summer. Work began in July and is expected to be finished before schools reopen. The restoration, which will cost about $600,000, will include replacing the road surface on the bridge and modifying bridge drainage. During construction, vehicle access will be maintained.

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 65 percent complete. It should be finished this summer.
