Long Reach Community Association

Master Plan Committee

In 2009, the Howard County Government developed a set of steps each village must go through to complete a redevelopment of its village center. One of these steps was developing a master plan for the redevelopment and in 2010 and 2011, this task in Long Reach fell to a Master Plan Committee. I sat committee with Columbia Council members Henry Dagenais, Ed Coleman, and Paul Bernard. We produced a recommendation and the Village Board refined that recommendation into a master plan. Both are linked to, below.
