The Ruxton-Riderwood-Lake Roland Area Community Plan for 2010 is underway, and now the committee is asking for feedback on the proposed plan.

The Community Plan input meeting is to be held September 13, 2010 at 7 pm at Blakehurst Retirement Community in Towson, 1055 West Joppa Road.

This Ruxton area community plan is due to be adopted by the Baltimore County Master Plan 2020.

From the Community Plan: Proposed view of Falls Rd at Clarkview Rd

Much of the new Ruxton-Riderwood-Lake Roland area plan involves the continuation of the expansion of Bare Hills on Falls Rd with park space, more buildings, and mixed-use capacity, plus large sidewalks to make a walkable-moveable friendly area where you don’t need a car to get around, and people should be able to avoid being struck by vehicles due to safety precautions.

The Jones Falls Valley Trail is in the plans to be expanded with more biking and hiking trails to people to enjoy.

Historic Preservation of areas such as the Scott Settlement area are addressed, as are Commercial areas for better access in & out for consumers’ use.

If you have ideas or thoughts on the Ruxton-Riderwood-Lake Roland Area Community Plan, make sure you are there on Monday, September 13, 2010 at 7 pm. A lot of hard work has been put into this, but they are looking for suggestions for improvement!

Help make our Towson neighborhoods even better places to live!
