County Council passes legislation to better shield Forge Road from BGE substation

PERRY HALL, MD —At its last meeting on January 21st, the Baltimore County Council passed legislation sponsored by Councilman David Marks that better shields the Forge Reserve community from a proposed expansion of the BGE substation near Forge Road.

Among other features, the legislation requires quality architectural standards; the screening of rooftop equipment; monumental road signage only; decorative fencing; a 15 foot landscaped buffer between any parking spot and a right of way; and restrictions on lighting.

Councilman Marks says he has been working for the past 18 months to try to minimize the impact that the new BGE building will have on residential neighbors.

“I have asked BGE to once again attempt to install stormwater mechanisms below their parking so we can reduce any destruction of the woods near Forge Reserve,” said Councilman Marks.
