Towson residents who are wary of zoning changes that would allow large-scale development in the Towson Triangle — the area near the American Legion just off York Road — are holding a meeting on Wednesday, Aug. 17, at First Lutheran Church to discuss how to fight the proposal.
In an email, the president of the Towson Manor Village Community Association, Joe La Bella, told fellow Towson residents:
The Baltimore County Council will be voting on their final decisions regarding CZMP zoning requests on August 30. Among these issues, [the Towson Manor Village Community Association] has adamantly opposed any upzoning requests within the Towson Triangle to BM-CT – which would expand the downtown core of Towson into the Triangle.Over the past couple months, Councilman Marks has refused to provide a position or substantial feedback regarding whether he will grant the upzoning proposals within the Triangle from DMS Developers (101 York Rd) and the American Legion. … If DMS is granted BM-CT zoning through the CZMP, our fight to prevent 101 York Rd will be severely set-back, if not finally defeated.
