County offices are closed on Monday, October 9, for Indigenous Peoples' Day.

The Architect on Call (AOC) program considers requests for services from owners of commercial properties located within Commercial Revitalization Districts. The program offers up to 10 free hours of professional architectural design services for exterior improvements to their buildings. After an initial site visit and meeting, the architect prepares a digital rendering of the building with design recommendations and a rough-cost estimate. This service is free when improvements are certified as complete within six months.

Design Review Panel

If your property is located within the Pikesville Commercial Revitalization District, improvements to the façade are subject to administrative review by the Design Review Panel (DRP).

If your property is located within any of the following Commercial Revitalization Districts and you plan to include any new construction (additions to existing buildings or new structures) to your property, the project will require full review by the DRP:

  • Arbutus
  • Catonsville
  • Essex
  • Loch Raven
  • Perry Hall
  • Pikesville
  • Towson
