Community Plan

Every ten years, the Association develops a community plan laying out its actions to achieve the identified priorities for the next ten years. The primary goal, as always, of the 2020 Ruxton Riderwood Lake Roland Area Community Plan is to help preserve and enhance the quality of life in our area communities. The plan has been developed to be an integral part of Baltimore County’s 2030 Master Plan as it relates to our community and will serve as an implementation guide for the Association’s Board, the Board’s sub-committee members, and a myriad of Baltimore County and the State of Maryland agencies and their staff. It is truly a living document and was adopted on 4/3/2023 by the Baltimore County Council.

Chair: Executive Committee


The committee coordinates Association-sponsored events, including, but not limited to, Dumpster and Donation Day, Shredder Day, Friday Night Lights, Annual Membership Meeting, and offsite Board retreats.  The Events Committee works with other Association committees to help plan events that benefit the community.  The committee can determine if virtual events, such as speakers or classes, would benefit members.

Chair: Kathleen Lane

Public Facilities, Enhancements, and Historic Preservation

The committee identifies and pursues community beautification and revitalization projects and funding, monitors the community for opportunities for improvement, sponsors Second Saturday Street & Stream Cleanups, invasive vine removal workdays, and develops preservation and education projects. The committee advocates for action to address traffic-related concerns, sidewalks, road, bridge improvements, trail, and light rail issues.

Chair:  Dod Poe


In collaboration with the Baltimore County Government, the committee advocates for sewer function improvements through the reduction of stormwater infiltration, the prevention of sewer overflows, and the impact overflows have on the community and the environment. The Sewer committee specifically focuses on the goals and action plan in the 2020 Community Plan. These goals and actions were shared with the community and were developed with significant input from the community.

Chair: Patty Mochel

Zoning, Code Enforcement, and Development

The committee monitors, oversees, and coordinates efforts relating to zoning issues (variances, special exceptions, comprehensive zoning, and code enforcement issues) between the owner/developer, the impacted neighbors, and the overall community. In addition, when material modifications are made to residences in the community requiring the Design Review Panel (DRP), the Association solicits neighborhood feedback and acts as the liaison between our residents and the County’s DRP.  The committee continues to work on the goals and action items outlined in the 2020 Community Plan.
