PLANNING COMMITTEE

OBJECTIVES

Develop long range, strategic plans for the evolution (and at times revolution) of South Middle River. Create goals and actionable strategies that incorporate and involve residents, the private sector and government with the objective of reviewing and implementing the South Middle River “Master Plan” (for improvement).

Direct and develop relationships with City and County Staff, and Elected Officials to clarify priorities of South Middle River and maximize resources and attention to South Middle River’s improvement. Educate residents and advise the SMRCA Board of Directors of opportunities to improve and beautify South Middle River.

Some Specific Activity Examples: Identify parts of the Master Plan which are the most realistically actionable and coordinate with available grants to execute the plans. Provide feedback to City Staff and Elected Officials about areas for increased focus in the areas of parks, street closures, high traffic and/or speeding zones, etc. Educate the community and communicate availability of swale programs, free trees, paint and supplies for improving and/or “beautifying” South Middle River.
