At its meeting on Monday, the Baltimore County Council is expected to pass legislation that modifies the boundaries of the Perry Hall commercial revitalization district to include the former Mars supermarket site.
The store was formerly located at the corner of Belair Road and Silver Spring Road.
This designation should help better market the site, according to Baltimore County Councilman David Marks.
Baltimore County’s commercial revitalization program provides tax incentives and technical assistance to property owners in distressed areas.
“Our office sponsored the original legislation creating the Perry Hall commercial revitalization district in 2011,” said Councilman Marks. “Since that time, the occupancy rate at the Perry Hall Square Shopping Center has climbed from about 60 percent to more than 90 percent.”
