TOWSON, Md. - Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz Monday announced the formation of four new Neighborhood Response Teams within the Department of Planning. Part of a planned reorganization, the teams are designed to improve coordination of community planning, housing and neighborhood investment services.
"The team structure brings a fresh, action-oriented approach to help the County support our neighborhoods with more effective and efficient programs," said County Executive Kamenetz.
The structure will allow the Department of Planning to better focus on specific coordinated actions to respond to neighborhood issues, as well as programs and projects that reinvest in neighborhoods and foster high-quality redevelopment. Each Neighborhood Response Team will include designated staff experts who can engage additional planning department specialists in the areas of community planning, housing policy and finance, and commercial revitalization.
Each of the four Neighborhood Response teams will work directly with neighborhood residents, community associations, and local business districts to assess and meet community needs, and will bring a coordinated approach designed to maximize the impact of federal, state and county services and funding.
