Following these meetings the draft plan will be finalized and the Proposed Management Plan will be submitted in early summer to both the Baltimore and Howard County Planning Boards for approval. Once approved the Managment Plan will then be submitted to the Maryland Heritage Areas Authority where it will help determine whether the area receives certification as a designated Maryland Heritage Area
