Residents of Dundalk and Mays Chapel say they plan to join forces for a Saturday rally to protest the sale of the North Point Government Center in Dundalk.

Although they live on different ends of the county, residents in both communities are angry about land decisions made by county officials.

Some Mays Chapel residents have fought to stop the county from building a new elementary school at a park. In Dundalk, some are fighting the planned sale of the North Point Government Center.

The rally is planned for noon to 2 p.m. at the corners of Merritt Boulevard and Wise Avenue. Those who oppose selling the government center have also been attending County Council meetings to try to urge the county to halt the sale.

"We're not going to stop," said Debbie Staigerwald of Dundalk United, which formed to fight the sale of property.

At a groundbreaking for the school last week, County Executive Kevin Kamenetz lost his temper when Mays Chapel residents heckled him.
