New signs to address parking woes at Gough Park

Gough Park has been gaining in popularity ever since it opened in Perry Hall in late 2014.

That popularity, though, has created parking woes for residents along Rexis Avenue.

Baltimore County Councilman David Marks has been working with the Baltimore County Department of Public Works to have three new signs installed on Rexis Avenue.

The signs will instruct motorists to use the parking lot at Gough Park and discourage them from parking along Rexis Avenue.

The signs will be ordered and installed this spring.
