Catonsville 2020 no longer exists, but volunteers say they're still working to improve the Frederick Road corridor after the group merged with a business organization. "We decided, what the heck, we're all volunteers, we value our time. Why are we meeting twice on the same issues," Scott Graham, former co-chairman of Catonsville 2020 who is now in that role for the economic development committee of the Greater Catonsville Chamber of Commerce, told the Catonsville Times. "So I just suggested to the group that we fold up our tent, hand off our recommendations to the chamber and give it our remaining budget."
