Baltimore County Councilman David Marks is opposing a new request by Towson Associates, Inc., to rezone 305 W. Chesapeake Ave. downtown for a more intensive zoning use. The company wants the option of converting the property to a dormitory.
Two self-taught watchmakers have quietly built their 16-year-old Towson Watch Co. into a small but prestigious player in the watch industry, and one that is now buoyed by a major investment by Kevin Plank's Sagamore Ventures.
Several Towson residents are circulating a petition asking the Baltimore County Council to keep a proposed Towson Urban Center overlay district north of Towsontown Boulevard, so as not to make future developments in the downtown core too dense. Also, a bill by Councilman David Marks to ease parking restrictions for a development that is proposed on the site of Trader Joe's was expected to be voted on this week.
