Virtual Open House

This Virtual Open House seeks additional input for the plan by reproducing each station’s content with interactive input activities in digital formats. We hope this provides a useful platform for sharing what you know about the corridor, and your ideas on how to improve its vibrancy and livability.

Please contact us with any questions at planning@howardcountymd.gov or 410-313-2350.

Project Open Houses

Open Houses were held in the Fall 2018 to solicit community input on existing land use, transportation and economic conditions and gauge personal preferences for each. The information will be analyzed, along with other base data, to inform the vision(s) for the corridor and test redevelopment scenarios in later planning phases.

Open House stations included information boards, write-in comment questions, mapping exercises and preference surveys, which consisted of the following topics:

  • Prior Planning Initiatives
  • Land Use Character
  • Getting Around



Route 1 Roundtable Discussion and Breakfast

Larry Twele, CEO of the  Howard County Economic Development Authority (HCEDA) hosted a Route 1 Roundtable Discussion and Breakfast at the Savage Firehouse in Savage, MD.  Russ Archambault, VP and Principal of RKG Associates was the primary speaker. He offered their initial observations about the corridor and facilitated a brief discussion with attendees about where business leaders believe the corridor should be heading in the future. Twenty five business representatives and corridor leaders were in attendance.  Attendees offered a wide variety of considerations related to transportation, zoning, economic conditions and asked about the project approach.
