Liberty Road

Liberty Road rolls through residential neighborhoods in northwest Baltimore County as a miles-long stretch of fast-food spots, auto supply places, rundown store facades and many traffic lights. To one county executive candidate, this scene has the makings of a state-sanctioned arts and entertainment district, and maybe even an outdoor performance venue. "I'd think it would be tremendous along the Liberty Road corridor," said Joseph Bartenfelder, a County Council member and contender for the Democratic nomination.

The thrust of The Sun's editorial and the approach of public officials for decades for improving Liberty Road and other secondary roads with aging retail areas has been to treat the problems as economic development issues ("Life on Liberty Road," May 23). The solutions have been to update failing areas with new buildings without dealing with the core problems. People need to be connected to their neighborhoods. Suburban Baltimore County communities were built around the love affair with the car. They became commuting communities.

A hard-hat-clad Baltimore County Executive James T. Smith Jr. revved up a Bobcat on Wednesday and plowed through the abandoned pharmacy counter in a long-shuttered Giant Foods on Liberty Road. Community members and county workers cheered the beginning of demolition to create the Liberty Center, a 39,000-square-foot building that will house a branch of the Community College of Baltimore County and offices of the county's workforce development and social services departments. The moment was both a reminder of progress Mr. Smith's administration has made through its commitment to improving the much-maligned Liberty Road corridor and of the challenges his successor will face.

A 50-year-old man was in fair condition Friday at Maryland Shock Trauma Center after being struck by a car on Liberty Road in Baltimore County. The pedestrian, Harry Keene, was crossing the thoroughfare near its intersection with Milford Mill Road shortly after 4:30 p.m. Thursday when he "walked into the path" of a Ford sedan in a turn lane, according to Lt. Robert McCullough, a spokesman for the county police. Keene, who lives on the 7900 block of Dunhill Village Circle, near the intersection where the accident occurred, was not using a crosswalk, McCullough said.
