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.

Information: Browse the Master Plan 2030 website or contact the Department of Planning at masterplan@baltimorecountymd.gov.

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.

Information: Browse the Sustainable Arbutus Area Plan or contact Josephine Selvakumar at 410-887-3480 or jselvakumar@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Water Line Extension at Glencliffe Circle and Old Court Road

Baltimore County contractors are extending water service to 12 houses on Glencliffe Circle and Old Court Road. The new line, which will cost about $400,000, will run 1,783 feet. Work began in April and is about 80 percent complete.

Information: Email engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Pedestrian Study for Pikesville

Baltimore County has hired a consultant to perform a desk audit in Pikesville to assess pedestrian conditions and to learn if improvements can and should be made to enhance traffic engineering design for walkers, bicyclists and drivers. The consultant will be reviewing accident histories and the examination will include all facets of traffic control, including signals and crosswalks, taking note of bicycle and pedestrian movements as well. One of the goals of the study, say engineers, is to create a context in which to safely coordinate crosswalks with present and future traffic conditions. The project is temporarily on hold, say engineers, until traffic patterns return to normal and schools reopen completely. The consultant plans to begin data collection in September and a report is expected in November.

Water Line on Falls Road

The Department of Public Works and Transportation plans to replace 11,000 feet of water line on Falls Road between the Beltway and the City line. The project will cost approximately $14 million and is scheduled to begin in the fall. The replacement of the line—sections of which are more than 90 years old—will improve the reliability of the system. Much of the construction will be done between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., and ingress and egress will be coordinated with and provided for all property owners.

Information: Email engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Water in the Dumbarton Neighborhood, Pikesville

Baltimore County is relining and cleaning more than 16,000 feet of water line under 27 streets in Dumbarton. The project, managed in two phases, is about 80 percent complete and will cost $4.2 million. Work is expected to be completed by the end of summer.

Information: Email engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.
