Mount Vista Park Program Open Space Conversion Public Information Meeting

Baltimore County Department of Recreation and Parks, in cooperation with the Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA), will host a public information meeting on Thursday, September 29 at 6:30 p.m. to present information on a proposed land exchange by Mount Vista Park on Raphel Road (Kingsville community), wherein the County would exchange a Recreation and Parks property between Mount Vista Park and Interstate 95 for a portion of MDTA-owned property adjoining the opposite side of Mount Vista Park. This is a virtual meeting via Webex.

The County property proposed for transfer was purchased with the use of Maryland Program Open Space (POS) funding, which requires that a “land conversion” process be undertaken and approved prior to changing the use of POS-funded land. POS conversion guidelines require that the POS-funded land be mitigated with land of equal or greater size, monetary value, and recreational value. County and state officials shall present information on the proposed land exchange and the reasons for pursuing the exchange, and offer the public the opportunity to ask questions about what is proposed. Recreation and Parks will also share plans for a program to activate in the park.

To call in to the hearing, dial U.S. toll 1-415-655-0001, Access Code: 231 811 11462.
Join the meeting online.
For more information, please contact the Department of Recreation and Parks’ POS Program Manager, Patrick McDougall, at pmcdoug@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Traffic Safety Project on Avondale Road, Carney

The Department of Public Works and Transportation will construct a traffic safety project for Avondale Road to control traffic speed. The project involves the construction of four standard speed bumps along the route from Joppa Road to the Baltimore Beltway overpass, and a brick raised crosswalk in the vicinity of Second Avenue. The project will cost about $65,000 and will be completed this fall.

Sewer Project Perry Hall Manor

The Department of Public Works and Transportation is connecting 104 homes in the Perry Hall Manor area in a long-term project to provide sewer service. In September, residents will see topographical and environmental surveyors gathering information for the design phase, which should begin later this year. Construction is expected to begin in about two years and will take from one to one-and-a-half years to complete.

Water Project in Perry Hall

Baltimore County is replacing 4,000 feet of water line in parts of Seven Courts Drive, Proctor Lane and Gunview Road. Work began in late February and is about 70 percent complete. The contractor’s crews are currently doing chlorination testing. Tie-ins are expected in the near future. Contractors are replacing four- and 24-inch diameter prestressed concrete pipe with ductile-iron pipe in a project that is anticipated to take between three and six months to complete. The project will cost $1.5 million. As the work progresses, residents will be kept informed by the contractor regarding temporary water shutoffs and parking changes needed to facilitate progress. Driving lanes disturbed by construction will be resurfaced upon completion of the project.

Information: Email engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Sewer Relining Project in Carney, Perry Hall and Towson

The Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPWT) began an extensive sewer relining project in Carney, Perry Hall and Towson in May. It’s 78 percent complete. More than 12 miles of sanitary sewer pipe will be relined during the next year and a half. The project will cost about $5.8 million. Most of the work will be below ground with minimal impact to communities. However, with any project of this scale, there may be some traffic or parking issues, and occasional chemical odors. DPWT staff will issue periodic updates.
