New Clinic Opens on Monday, June 22

In an effort to further expand access to COVID-19 testing, Baltimore County is opening a new walk-up clinic at the Baltimore Highlands Lansdowne Health Center at 3902 Annapolis Road, Baltimore, Maryland 21227.

Beginning on June 22, the new site will operate on Mondays from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

“Our fight against COVID-19 is not over. To stop the spread of this deadly virus, we must continue to make access to free, convenient testing as easy as possible for residents across Baltimore County,” said County Executive Johnny Olszewski. “As we take gradual steps to safely reopen, expanded testing at sites like this one will be critical in protecting the health and safety of our neighbors and loved ones.”

“With the addition of this new walk-up testing clinic in the Lansdowne area, we are now providing testing at five locations across the County,” said Baltimore County Health Officer Dr. Gregory Wm. Branch. “Multiple testing locations is key in helping identify—and contain—the transmission of this virus.”

Preserves Four Acres of Developable Land in Residential Area

Baltimore County Executive Don Mohler and 1st District Councilman Tom Quirk announced to an enthusiastic group of area residents this morning that the County is preserving four acres of land in Lansdowne so that it will be preserved as environmentally beneficial open space rather than being developed into townhomes.

The County purchased the four acres, located in a neighborhood near the intersection of Hammonds and Hollins Ferry Roads from the Charles H. Gehringer Revocable Trust. Program Open Space acquisition funds will be applied to reimburse the full $415,000 purchase price.

“Preserving this open space helps to retain the character of the neighborhood, while also protecting the water quality of the Patapsco River, which flows into the Chesapeake Bay,” Mohler said.

The seller had proposed building townhomes on the property. When the community expressed concerns, Councilman Quirk suggested that the County use POS funds to preserve it as passive open space.

“It's great to see Program Open Space money being used for this property,” said Quirk. “Our office worked very closely with the County Executive's office to make this important open space project happen. We had dozens and dozens of community leaders and activists ask us to preserve this land as passive open space and I'm delighted to see this transaction completed.”

Preserving passive open space in neighborhoods adds to the quality of life for the community, reducing traffic congestion. This site has the added benefit of being near the Patapsco River, so keeping it undeveloped helps filter stormwater run-off and improves water quality in the Patapsco and the Bay.

Program Open Space acquisition funds will be applied to reimburse the full purchase price.  The POS covenants will preserve this area as open space in this established area of the County.
