Planning Department Welcomes Census Outreach Specialists

In February, the County's Department of Planning welcomed new temporary staff to help spread the word that “Everyone Counts” for the 2020 U.S. Census, which is underway now at my2020Census.gov. The staffers are funded in part through a grant from the State of Maryland. The Department of Planning is providing crucial in-kind support to work with traditionally hard-to-count populations, including low-income households, senior citizens, renters, people who speak limited English and households with children under age five.

The staffers are working under Sevetra Peoples, Special Assistant to County Administrative Officer Stacy L. Rodgers, who directs the County’s census efforts. The County’s overall response rate to the Census in 2010 was 78 percent. That count was slightly down from that of the 2000 Census.

Ms. Rodgers co-chairs the County’s 2020 Decennial Census Complete Count Committee, along with County Executive Johnny Olszewski.

Says Peoples, “Mr. Olszewski has set an ambitious goal of a 92 percent completion rate, to make sure that Baltimore County’s communities receive the federal support they’re due.”

The outreach workers have been focusing their efforts on collaborating with the County’s numerous neighborhood and civic associations, residents of senior apartment complexes, early childhood educators, and others.

The Census became available online on March 10 and continues into July.

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 that were not issues is reenacted without change.

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.

Four Miles of New Water Line for Parkville

The new ductile iron pipes will be located in an area bounded by Perring Parkway, Taylor Avenue, Harford Road and the Baltimore City line. The $5.6 million project, which is eight percent complete, includes the reinstallation and relocation of 705 water service connections to water customers.

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

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. Work began in October. The old pipe, prone to frequent breaks and dating from the 1930s, is being replaced with ductile iron pipe. The project, costing about $4.15 million, is expected to be completed by the fall. The project is 50 percent complete.

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 began in July 2018 and will take about a year to finish. The project is 90 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 2018 and is expected to take about a year and a half to complete. It should be open in the late spring or early summer.

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

The Future Fullerton Reservoirs

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 2021. The longevity of the work cycle to date has, in part, reflected careful and laborious coordination with CSX that has proceeded with a deliberative pace. This bridge will be part of the future Campbell Boulevard Corridor.

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