Johnny Olszewski proposes legislation to establish Baltimore County housing department

April 2, 2021

Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski Jr. wants to create an agency dedicated to housing, eviction and foreclosure prevention and community revitalization, the last of the state’s most populous jurisdictions to do so. The new department would assume oversight of the county’s 2016 agreement with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to correct decades of policies and practices that perpetuated racial segregation, and to resolve a lawsuit brought by groups that included the Baltimore County NAACP.
