  • Create an attractive new community 
  • Attract good jobs 
  • Make better economic use of under-developed land 
  • Improve the corridor’s image 
  • Enhance real estate values and the tax base 
  • Provide amenities that would benefit nearby neighborhoods 
  • Create a model for more sustainable growth


Feasibility studies conducted by the Planning Department show that there is a real opportunity to generate new, high-quality jobs in this district over time, increase property values, provide new housing and amenities, and improve the appearance of this segment of Pulaski Highway, all of which would benefit nearby property owners and neighborhoods. 

Past Project Work

Baltimore County conducted two previous studies, Phase One in 2009 and Phase Two in 2010 to target an area along Pulaski Highway for future redevelopment, and to prepare and test a redevelopment concept. These studies were an outgrowth of efforts to address growth along the Pulaski Highway corridor in Baltimore County that was expected to result from changes at Aberdeen Proving Ground related to the federal Base Relocation and Closure (BRAC) initiative. The Phase One and Phase Two studies were conducted with funding from the Chesapeake Science and Security Corridor, a consortium of local governments affected by BRAC.

Phase Two generated a Final Summary Report (PDF), which consolidates findings from the first two phases, and a Final Transportation Report (PDF).

The Community Design Workshop is part of a Phase Three study. It is being conducted by the Baltimore County Department of Planning in partnership with the Maryland Department of Transportation, Office of Planning and Capital Programming, and the State Highway Administration, Regional and Intermodal Planning Division. This phase of the project is funded with a grant from the Federal Highway Administration.
