Baltimore City Planning director Otis Rolley outlined the city’s draft comprehensive plan to the GBC Board of Directors at its March 10 meeting.
The city hasn’t revised its master plan since 1971. A flawed city zoning code is among major issues the plan seeks to address, Rolley said. The existing zoning code suffers from complex and confusing regulations and ineffective development controls, he added.
The draft comprehensive plan is written in the format of a business plan, basing its planning on six-year goals instead of the traditional 30-year goals. It is organized around four basic categories — live, earn, play and learn.
