Community Engagement Meeting

July 22, 2021 @ 6pm – 7:30pm
Online | Visit baltimorecountymd.gov/masterplan2030

Please join us for a meeting that will focus on gathering ideas to develop a vision for our County over the next 10 years. One important focus of Master Plan 2030 is ensuring that all residents have access to high-quality affordable and accessible housing, cultural, and recreational opportunities in safe communities while promoting responsible economic development.

This meeting will focus on identifying and prioritizing important aspects of your community’s character to preserve, enhance, transform, or strengthen in Master Plan 2030.

In preparation for the meeting, please ponder the following six questions:

  1. What do you value about your community that you do not want to see changed?
  2. What changes would you most like to see in your community in the future?
  3. What are the most important issues facing your community over the next 10 years?
  4. What do you want your community to be like in 10 years?
  5. Looking beyond your community, what is the County’s biggest challenge in the next 10 years?
  6. What is the County’s biggest opportunity?

Lansdowne Areas will be the focus of discussion for this meeting!

For more information about Master Plan 2030, visit the website.

Over the years, our team hs worked on many different types of fire loss jobs.

Recently, we received a call from an adjuster for a terrible house fire. That same afternoon, our team started the board up and tarping to secure the location. An 85′ boom was required to finish the job, which we completed the following morning wen the boom was delivered.

Ultimately, we had to dispose of the contents of the entire home, but first, our team had to inventory everything that was lost, a process that took 3 and a half days.

Home fires are never easy but our team has the skills and training to handle each situation as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
