Community

Cathy Bevins recognizes that strong communities are the key to a strong county, and Cathy knows the importance of listening and working with the community.  Eastern Baltimore County, and especially the 6th District, includes a diverse geographic landscape -- with dense, urban, suburban, and rural communities, including many on the waterfront -- and Cathy knows that priority issues in one community may vary from the issues that are important on the other side of the district.  Cathy is proud of the many relationships she has built with the strong network of community associations and civic groups that work on behalf of their communities, and she knows the importance of working together to keep these communities proud, safe, and strong.  

Since taking office, Cathy has worked with local community associations to bring a variety of neighborhood improvements, including the following:

  • Securing funding to get new curbs for the ballfields on Fuselage Avenue in Aero Acres
  • Facilitating Project Clean Stream community clean-ups in Harford Park, Hawthorne, Linover Park, and White Marsh Run/Bird River Grove Road, just to name a few 
  • Securing funding to pave roads in the Hamiltowne Community in Rosedale
  • Facilitating meetings and negotiations for the Essex Skypark to secure a 99-year lease with Baltimore County to remain a staple in its Back River Neck community
  • Securing funding to elevate frequently flooded a portion of Bowleys Quarters Road and to install sidewalks on heavily-traveled area leading to shopping center
  • Ensuring adequate road paving and restoration projects along various community roadways, including re-paving the entire Hawthorne community
  • Working to enhance visual and aesthetic appearance of county-owned property in Overlea, including new fence above Belair Road mural
