Map of the property located at 2100 Liberty Heights Avenue.

Notice is hereby given that the public is invited to comment on the request by the Parks and People Foundation for an Administrative Waiver to the requirements of the City Code which will allow the redevelopment project to be governed by the provisions of the Baltimore City Stormwater Management Ordinance – Division II, as reflected on May 4, 2009. The project is eligible for an Administrative Waiver because it received Preliminary Project Approval on or before May 4, 2010. The Preliminary Project Approval was granted on April 27, 2010. Comments on the request for the Administrative Waiver must be received by 5:00 p.m. on November 3, 2010, to ensure consideration by the Department.

The Parks and People Foundation Headquarters at Auchentoroly Terrace proposes the construction of approximately 10,000 square feet of office and meeting space and rehabilitation of the existing historic buildings on-site. Additional associated improvements include:

  • Construction of a parking lot
  • Installation of landscaping and a green roof
  • Construction of various utilities, storm drainage systems, roadway improvements, sidewalk improvements, bike routes, and on-site pedestrian lighting
  • Installation of stormwater quality and underground quantity control facilities
  • Additional site improvements

In order to meet the 2010 Baltimore City SWM Ordinance requirements for the proposed improvements, an Administrative Waiver must be granted by the Department that will allow the project to be reviewed in accordance with the stormwater management regulations that existed prior to May 4, 2010. The project is managing stormwater quantity run-off through the use of a green roof, pervious paving, underground cisterns, and underground detention pipes. Stormwater management quality is being managed through the use of a green roof, pervious paving, sand filters, and bioretention facilities.
