County Council OKs master plan for development

TOWSON -- The County Council approved this week a master plan to guide the county until 2010 with goals for economic development, transportation, recreation, rural land management and a host of other areas.

About two years in the making, the new master plan goes beyond what has traditionally been a land-use document to include other social areas, such as education and the preservation of traditionally black communities.

Hundreds of community members helped create the document, which is available through the Baltimore County Office of Planning.
