Will Baltimore County prevent bad behavior outside the new Towson Square development?

Although as a Towson resident I support redevelopment of the downtown, I hope the county will take measures so that weekend evenings at Towson Square do not resemble those outside the Towson Commons AMC ("Towson project building a buzz," Jan. 16).

Large groups of noisy youths used to loiter outside the theater and play "chicken" with cars traveling along York Road long after the last movie ended. If the county executive doesn't recall what these activities were like on Fridays and Saturday nights, I am sure the police officers of Precinct 6 do.

Should the former patrons of Towson Commons bring their unruly behavior to Towson Square, the county should be concerned that rather than bringing people to the county seat, some residents will choose to leave.
