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:

  1. Easternfrom the Baltimore City line to Interstate 695
  2. Central—from Interstate 695 to approximately Stoneybrook Road
  3. Western—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 held a set of open house community engagement meetings in November 2019 in which the public rotated through stations and provided feedback about issues and opportunities in the Liberty Road corridor and surrounding communities. The public provided comments on topics related to the Sustainable Community plan:

  • Economy (Workforce Development, Business Attraction and Retention, Business Incentives, Financing Programs and Startup Assistance, Site Selection, etc.)
  • Environment (Parks, Open Space, Trails, Trees, Water Quality, Litter, etc.)
  • General Ideas (Any topics not discussed above)
  • Housing, Land Use and Local Planning (Housing Opportunities and Programs, Foreclosure, Increase in Affordable Housing, Changes to Zoning, Improved Land Use Policy, Strengthening Communities)
  • Quality of Life (Crime Reduction, Recreation and Parks, Code Violation, Health and Human Services, Education, etc.)
  • Transportation (Walkability, Transit Access, Bicycle Access, Level of Comfort, Congestion, etc.)


We encouraged the community to take a survey regarding issues and opportunities in the communities surrounding the Liberty Road corridor so that they could be incorporated into the presentation of key findings.

Presentation of Key Findings

View the full presentation (PDF) from the January 21 public meeting and the list of proposed projects for each concern (PDF). 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.


Outcome and Next Steps

The community-generated ideas developed at the open house community engagement meetings and the December 2019 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.

County Executive Johnny Olszewski and Councilman Jones hosted a fourth council district Town Hall discussion on January 23, 2019 to talk about issues and concerns happening in the community. The major issues mentioned at the Town Hall meeting are shown on this graph (PDF).
