Legislative Update

Baltimore County Seeks Age-Friendly Community Input

Baltimore County is seeking community input on making Baltimore County more age-friendly to empower residents of all ages and abilities to live, work, play and reside comfortably in their communities.

“An age-friendly Baltimore County is one where all residents feel welcome and can take comfort in knowing that their concerns are being heard and their needs are being met,” County Executive Johnny Olszewski said.

About the Age-Friendly Baltimore County Initiative

County Executive Olszewski and the Baltimore County Department of Aging earlier this year launched the Age-Friendly Baltimore County initiative in partnership with the AARP network of Age-Friendly states and communities. The network is the United States affiliate of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Age-Friendly Cities and Communities Program, an international effort launched in 2006 to help cities prepare for rapid population aging and the parallel trend of urbanization.

The Age-Friendly Baltimore County initiative is also examining issues such as affordable and accessible housing; creating open and accessible green spaces; accessible public transportation options and ways to create more opportunities for civic engagement and employment.

To fill out the survey, visit the questionnaire on SurveyMonkey.

Revitalization and Beautification of Historic Main Street

In partnership with County Executive Johnny Olszewski, I’m pleased to share that the state Department of Housing and Community Development today announced that the Reisterstown Improvement Association has been awarded a $100,000 Community Legacy Grant for the revitalization and beautification of Historic Main Street. This moves Reisterstown Main Street one step closer to becoming a certified Maryland Main Street, which is a comprehensive downtown revitalization program that was established by the state in 1998. Only one one other Main Street in Baltimore County — Dundalk — has this designation.

The next step in the process is that a resolution will be discussed at the County Council’s work session on Tuesday, Nov. 26 at 2 p.m. Anyone from the public is welcomed to testify at the work session, and I encourage as many folks from Reisterstown and beyond to show up and support this resolution. Then, the County Council will vote on the resolution at our legislative session on Monday, Dec. 2 at 6 p.m.

This grant will provide a big boost to Historic Main Street at a time when investment in our commercial corridors is critical to growing our local economy and establishing a strong sense of place.

Many thanks to the Reisterstown Improvement Association, state Department of Housing and Community Development, the county executive and all the advocates who helped get us to this point.
