Liberty Road Study Community Meetings

The County is conducting a study of Liberty Road and we want to hear from you! A successful study depends upon an inclusive planning process that receives input from a diverse range of voices in the community. The County will be holding a set of community engagement meetings in November at two locations within the study area. The intent is to rotate venues throughout to engage feedback from a diverse set of stakeholders.

Community meetings are scheduled as follows:

  • Thursday, November 21, from 6 to 8:30 p.m., in the Randallstown Liberty Center, 3637 Offutt Road, Randallstown, Maryland 21133

The meeting will begin with a short presentation about the plan process followed by an opportunity to provide open-ended feedback about issues and opportunities in the communities surrounding the Liberty Road corridor.

Comprehensive Zoning Map Process 2020 Has Begun

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 that were not issues is reenacted without change.

View a list of public hearing dates and locations. For more information, please visit the CZMP page.

If you have any questions, please contact the Department of Planning, 105 West Chesapeake Avenue, Suite 101, Towson, Maryland 21204. Call 410-887-3480 or email czmp2020@baltimorecountymd.gov.
