Baltimore County Master Plan 2030

Baltimore County’s Master Plan 2030 provides the vision and strategies for growth over the next 10 years into a modern, 21st century county. We invite you to be a visionary. Visit the Master Plan website and join to stay informed and find out how you can bring your ideas to the table about growth, development and conservation.

Over the summer months, Department of Planning staff will be meeting with communities to inform them about the plan and ask for input about how they see their community, and the County, growing in the next 10 years. Please be sure to check the calendar on the Master Plan website to check for meetings in your area.

Arbutus Sustainable Community Designation

The proposed Arbutus Sustainable Community (SC) designation will aim at targeting public and private resources for multiple State agency investments and prioritizations. The proposed Arbutus SC boundary is focused on the Arbutus commercial core and its connections to University of Maryland Baltimore County and the surrounding residential community.

The Department of Planning has submitted the application to the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development and the application is under review. Once approved, the status of the application will be posted. The Baltimore County Council voted on the resolution (Bill 66-21) at the May 27 meeting.
