Vision #1: Maryland’s Working Water front
The Greater Baybrook Vision and Action Plan builds off the peninsula’s history of industrial port businesses. We envision a peninsula with a thriving industrial waterfront, where anchor businesses strengthen and support our neighborhoods and local workforce. Greater Baybrook can remain Maryland’s premier working waterfront, where business and other opportunities generate wealth and improve the quality of life for all Greater Baybrook residents.

Vision #2: Thriving Retail Corridors
The Greater Baybrook Vision and Action Plan identifies Ritchie Highway as a critical driver of community revitalization. The Ritchie Highway corridor will continue to be a hub of shopping for residents living in the Greater Baybrook area acting as the spine for the community. A revitalized Ritchie Highway also will encourage regional motorists driving through Greater Baybrook towards Baltimore City or Glen Burnie to stop and explore the peninsula. A strengthened Ritchie Highway will also support the revitalization of Greater Baybrook ’s main street retail nodes, including Hanover Street, Patapsco Avenue, and Pennington Avenue.

Vision #3: Work Where You Live
The Greater Baybrook Vision and Action Plan places a priority on supporting the economic success
of local residents. Building on the history of local industry and production, we envision a peninsula
where new and existingresidents have easy access to a stable job market, i ncluding maritime
industry anchor businesses and locally incubated workforce hubs. Residents would have access to
training, certification, and wraparound services to ensure their long-term success in positions
throughout Greater Baybrook.
