What's New: Participate in the Phase II of the Corridor Plan!

Phase II Online Workshop Open Now Through July 31:


Public workshops were held during a hot spell in June in Elkridge and North Laurel to review and provide feedback on the Plan's economic, land use and transportation strategies being considered for the Corridor. Attendees first heard a presentation by the project team before walking through a series of stations with survey questions on the concepts and preliminary considerations presented .  Your input will help shape the Plan's direction.


Given your overwhelming response to the Phase I Virtual Open House earlier this winter, we've opened up another online workshop for Phase II, which replicates the workshop's presentation, stations, and survey to get your input for refining the Plan. The following 2 steps are all you need:


Step 1: View the June Workshop Presentation to See Where the Plan is Now.




Step 2: Walk Through the Stations and Complete the Survey Questions

Stations cover the project's overview, what we've learned from you, existing conditions, character areas, connectivity and implementation.

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.

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
