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.
