Planning officials to discuss Mountain Road revitalization

The Anne Arundel County Office of Planning and Zoning will host a public meeting this week to present plans for a revitalization study along Mountain Road in Pasadena.

The meeting will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday at George Fox Middle School, 7922 Outing Ave., Pasadena.

“This is an ... opportunity for residents in the Pasadena area to learn more about the study and the benefits of commercial revitalization,” said Mary Burkholder, acting president and CEO/director of the county’s Commercial Revitalization Initiative.

The planning office is working in coordination with the Anne Arundel Economic Development Corporation, Community and Constituent Services and the Pasadena Business Association to identify roadway and pedestrian/bicycle improvements that would allow safer access and promote economic vitality along the Mountain Road corridor.

In 2001 and 2002, Anne Arundel County adopted legislation to stimulate private investment and encourage revitalization in older commercial and industrial areas. The legislation targets vacant, underused commercial properties in certain areas of the county.

The Mountain Road corridor is one of the county’s 16 designated revitalization districts.
