You may not realize it, but Baltimore County is in the midst of a once-in-a-decade opportunity to transform the very “systems” that make county life worth living, from housing and transportation to education and environment, to economic competitiveness and equity. And what is the catalyst for this remarkable moment in time? It is the Master Plan 2030 process. State law requires that each county review its master plan at least once every 10 years. This is a chance for the county to pull together a range of stakeholders, with a special focus on residents and communities, to take stock of where we have been and to plan for where we should go — together.
