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.

Water Project on Back River Neck Road

Baltimore County is replacing 9,832 feet of cast-iron water pipe on Back River Neck Road from Hyde Park Road to Mizells Road starting in August. The old pipe, prone to frequent breaks and dating from the 1930s, will be replaced with ductile iron pipe. The project, costing about $4.15 million, is expected to be completed by spring 2020.

Information: Contact the Bureau of Engineering and Construction at engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Harewood Park Sewer Pumping Station

Baltimore County has begun renovating the Harewood Park Sewer Pumping Station at 12901 Princeton Road in Chase. Work on the $3.3 million project officially began in July 2018—it's now 39 percent complete—and will take about a year to finish.

Information: Contact the Bureau of Engineering and Construction at engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Water Improvements in Victory Villa

Baltimore County is investing $2.5 million dollars in the Victory Villa area to replace aging cast-iron water pipes in order to improve water quality, reliability and fire protection. The work, which began in January and should take a year to finish, will replace 9,700 feet of six-inch and eight-inch diameter cast-iron line. The project is 95 percent complete.

Information: Contact the Bureau of Engineering and Construction at engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Campbell Boulevard

Baltimore County is extending Campbell Boulevard from Bird River Road to Windlass Run. Construction of the $5 million project began in October and is expected to take about a year and a half to complete.

The Future Fullerton Reservoirs

In February 2017, the Department of Public Works broke ground on the Fullerton Reservoirs—three have been planned for the site. Construction is expected to take about three years and cost $80.1 million. Engineers estimate the project is about 88 percent complete. The construction site is bounded by Ridge Road, Bucks School House Road and Perry Hall Boulevard.

Information: Call the Bureau of Engineering and Construction, Water Design, at 410-887-3783 or email engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Mohrs Lane Bridge

The Mohrs Lane Bridge (Bridge B-0143) over the CSX Railroad, north of Pulaski Highway, was closed in 2007 because of structural deterioration. Demolition was completed by CSX in 2011 at no cost to Baltimore County, which assumed ownership and plans to rebuild the span. A new bridge is currently being designed with construction scheduled to begin by late 2020. This bridge will be part of the future Campbell Boulevard Corridor.
