Councilman Marks to require additional community input, county review of Gerst Farm development

NOTTINGHAM, MD—Baltimore County Councilman David Marks announced on Monday that he will require additional community input and more county review of the proposed development at Perry Hall’s Gerst Farm.

Councilman Marks has worked for the past five months to reduce the size of the development and increase the amount of open space. Due to his efforts, 72 percent of the project will include age-restricted villas. No one below 18 years of age will be allowed to live there, which should address concerns about school overcrowding.

None of the project will advance until two new schools move forward.

More than 40 percent of the entire parcel will be open space.

“I look forward to continuing conversations about this project, which is why I will require additional community input and county review of this proposal,” said Councilman Marks.

A work group was created in May 2019 to discuss the future of the property.
