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.
Prior plans have had a significant positive impact on our neighborhoods, such as creating the Greater Ruxton Area Foundation and its ongoing land preservation easement and neighborhood enhancement program and the agreement to transfer operational control of Lake Roland Park from Baltimore City to Baltimore County, among many other accomplishments.
The first key step in developing the plan was an email survey sent in May 2020 to over 1,000 residents in the Ruxton, Riderwood, and Lake Roland area communities, which yielded nearly 50% responses. A committee of the Association’s Board performed the next step, which involved developing the goals and detailed action steps for the five key issues identified by the community in the survey. The result is the 2020 Community Plan.
