WHY IS THE NEW Midtown Community Plan a must-read document? Because it challenges all the traffic arrangements that have choked the Charles, St. Paul and Calvert Street corridors since the 1950s. And because it proposes radically different traffic patterns to make the area more livable. The Midtown Community Plan, drafted by Charles B. Duff Jr., recommends de-emphasizing St. Paul street as a southbound thoroughfare. Instead, it spells out ways to use the Jones Falls Expressway more efficiently and seeks to divert more downtown-bound commuter traffic to Guilford and Greenmount avenues.

This 100-year-old Baltimore County farmhouse has always been warm and homey. The current owners, however, found that they needed more room, and better traffic patterns throughout the house. The dining room had become control central, that organizational hub where meals are planned, bills paid and gatherings orchestrated.To the rescue came architect Jeffrey Penza of Penza Baukhages Architects. His solution: a kitchen addition that also included a substantial mudroom to provide an axis for traffic control, as well as a butler's pantry, a family room and, most important of all, a small office area.
