Intended as an addendum to our 2001 Community Plan, the current plan continues to focus on area improvements. We are proud of achieving many of our 2001 Community Plan objectives as outlined below and look forward to continuing our work.

  • Baltimore County’s takeover of the management of Lake Roland (formerly Robert E. Lee Park).
    • The County’s takeover was long advocated by RRLRAIA.
    • With nearly $6.1 million in grant funding from the State and County, significant improvements to the Park have been made.
    • It is a spot where families can go to canoe, kayak, run, bike, picnic and take their dogs.
    • Memberships for various activities are available through the Nature Council.
    • The Park opened in the Fall of 2011.
  • Creation of the Greater Ruxton Area Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization.
    • GRAF accepts tax-deductible conservation easements to encourage preservation of our open space.
    • The Foundation is also responsible for many enhancement projects throughout the community such as restoration of the privet hedge along the light rail tracks.
  • Inclusion in Baltimore County’s Design Review Panel process.
    • New residential construction and substantial additions to buildings within RRLRAIA boundaries are now subject to review by the County’s Design Review Panel. The goal of the DRP is to encourage design excellence.
  • Restoration of the Rider House.
    • The Rider House serves as the office and meeting space for the Association.
