Baltimore County has created an online form to help you promote your services to residents. The information you share through this form will be added to our BaltCo To-Go Map where residents can search for restaurants offering carry out, drive through and delivery services. Should your offerings change over the course of this crisis, enter a new submission to the form with the updated information, and the application will identify the previous entry as a duplicate and remove the old entry.
Baltimore County will begin listening sessions to document critical needs in the Tourism sector. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to participate. RSVP by email is strongly recommended to manage an orderly listening session.
