Maryland Agricultural Land Preservation Foundation Fiscal Year 2020 Application Cycle Deadline

Deadline: Wednesday, May 1, 2019

The Maryland Agricultural Land Preservation Foundation (MALPF) is seeking applications for the current easement cycle. Staff encourages landowners who may be thinking about an easement sale to apply now. If you applied last year and have not been extended an offer, you are encouraged to reapply. Baltimore County staff is ready to assist landowners with their applications. The application period is open now and the final deadline is May 1.

To be eligible, the land must be within Baltimore County's minimum soil criteria and be at least 50 acres in size, or adjacent to an already preserved farm. Funding is extremely limited, so selection will be based upon the quality of the farm land, development potential, discounted asking price and other factors.

The application can be found online.

Information: Contact Kaylee Justice or Joseph Wiley at 410-887-3480 or landpres@baltimorecountymd.gov.

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 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.

Jones Falls Large Diameter Sewer Rehabilitation Project

The Department of Public Works has begun a large-diameter sewer rehabilitation project, which includes relining, from an area north of Timonium Road to the Beltway. The job is expected to take about twelve months and will include lines near School Lane and Burton Avenue.

Dairy Road Bridge Replacement

Baltimore County is replacing the wooden deck and other timber elements of the Dairy Road Bridge (B-0034) west of Interstate 83 this spring. The road is expected to be closed for construction between March 18 and May 17. Engineers anticipate repairs will cost approximately $150,000.

Information: Contact the Bureau of Engineering, Department of Public Works, at engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Girdwood Road

The Department of Public Works has installed two speed humps, a raised intersection, school crosswalks, a tree-lined median, a light and a new storm drain on Girdwood Road to promote pedestrian and vehicle safety. In addition, pedestrian signals have been installed at the intersection of Girdwood, Padonia and Cranbrook roads. A raised intersection at Spring Lake Drive and Fallsbrook Road is also planned.

Information: Contact the Bureau of Traffic Engineering at 410-887-3554.

New Water Main in Cromwell Bridge Road

Baltimore County began the installation of a new 12-inch diameter water line in Cromwell Bridge Road between Loch Raven Boulevard and Gleneagles Court in January. The new 1,374-foot line, which will connect two existing terminal water lines, should be finished in the summer and cost $622,000. It is now 85 percent complete.

Information: Email engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Springdale Water Tank

The Department of Public Works is repainting the elevated Springdale water tank at 906 Old Bosley Road in Cockeysville. Work on the tank, which has a capacity of one million gallons, began in September and is about 80 percent complete. The work, which is expected to cost $800,000, is presently on winter shutdown.

Information: Email engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Water Main Replacement on York Road

Baltimore County is replacing a water main on York Road between Padonia Road and Wight Avenue. Contractors are replacing an old cast-iron main built in the 1930s that has failed frequently in the past decade. The project, which began in July and will cost about $14 million, is expected to take about two years to complete and is about 35 percent finished. Crews are currently on winter shutdown.

Information: Email engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Galloway Avenue at York Road

Baltimore County is widening the south side of Galloway Avenue just west of York Road. Work is scheduled to start in the spring.

Information: Email engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Bridge Near Third Mine Branch Reduced to One Lane

A nine-foot-long, concrete-slab bridge (Bridge B-0757) on Stablersville Road, just west of Graystone Road, is in need of repair and was reduced to one lane of traffic by Department of Public Works structural engineers more than two years ago. The bridge is scheduled to be repaired and County engineers have begun to scope out options.

Information: Email engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Gores Mill Road Bridges

The concrete bridges that span Little Falls just south of the Morris Meadows Recreation Farm (Bridges B-0136, B-0137, B-0138 and B-0346) were constructed more than 80 years ago and need replacement or renovation. Work began in August 2017 and should be completed by this summer. Work on the project is currently suspended in accordance with environmental permitting requirements, but is expected to resume in May when stream restrictions on construction are lifted. The project, estimated to cost $3.6 million, is 80 percent complete.
