NeighborSpace works to enhance the livability of communities inside Baltimore County’s Urban Rural Demarcation Line (URDL), by protecting and improving land with small parks, gardens, trails, and natural areas. In this densely populated place, where 90% of the County’s population lives on just 1/3 of the County’s total land area, we seek to promote health & well-being, buffer local streams from polluted run-off, and to enhance the value of homes and businesses. With the help of many supporters in the community and in government, NeighborSpace has protected 21 properties valued at over $2.8 million and contributing 100 acres toward open space within the URDL to date.
