the Liberty Road corridor
(PDF) and the three nodes.

The Liberty Road corridor is approximately eight miles long and runs from the Baltimore City line to Lyons Mill Road. For the purpose of the Study, the Liberty Road corridor has been divided into three nodes—Eastern, Central and Western. 

The Eastern node runs from the Baltimore City line to Interstate 695. The Central node runs from Interstate 695 to approximately Stoneybrook Road. The Western node extends from Stoneybrook Road to Lyons Mill Road. 

Engagement Opportunities

A successful study depends upon an inclusive planning process that receives input from a diverse range of voices in the community. We will be holding a set of community engagement meetings in November at two locations within the Study area. The intent is to rotate venues to engage feedback from a diverse set of stakeholders.

Meetings

Kick-off and Open House

Thursday, November 14, 6 to 8:30 p.m.

Both meetings are open house format in which the public rotates through stations and provides feedback about issues and opportunities in the Liberty Road corridor and surrounding communities. The public will have the opportunity to provide comments on topics related to the Sustainable Community plan:

  • Environment (Parks, Open Space, Trails, Trees, Water Quality, Litter, etc.)

Presentation of Key Findings

Snow Date: Thursday, January 23, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The objective of this meeting is to present to the community key findings of issues, concerns and ideas we heard from the open house events and the online survey.

Study Findings

Community input gathered during the study revealed the community’s most important issues.

The top 10 concerns include:

  • Litter
  • Traffic Congestion
  • Police Presence
  • Quality and Diversity of Businesses
  • Walkability and Pedestrian Safety
  • Property Maintenance
  • Open Space and Green Space
  • Homeownership Affordability
  • Business Attraction and Retention
  • Improvements and Beautification

View the full presentation (PDF) from the January 21, 2019 public meeting and the list of proposed projects (PDF) for each concern. During the meeting, the County asked the community to prioritize the projects through a group exercise (PDF). The results of the prioritization exercise will be shared once the review process is complete.

Survey

Please take the Liberty Road Study Survey. Feedback is needed on issues and opportunities in the communities surrounding the Liberty Road corridor. The survey will be available until mid-December.

Outcome and Next Steps

The community-generated ideas developed at the workshops and the survey will provide a foundation for recommendations for the Northwest Gateways Sustainable Community Area Plan renewal, as well as the key nodes along the corridor. The final design recommendations will be integrated into the next deliverable, which is the draft final study report.
