Baltimore County Councilman David Marks announced on Wednesday a change in ownership at the iconic Carney snowball stand, and legislation that will help provide certainty for snowball stand operators along major corridors.

Claude and Joni Elmore have entered into an agreement to purchase the property at Joppa and Magledt Roads, where there has been a snowball stand for more than 60 years. The Elmores plan to upgrade the snowball stand and make improvements in 2017.

Councilman Marks has introduced legislation that would provide some certainty for snowball stand operators like the Elmores, allowing stands by right in certain zones and with some restrictions.

“This property has been eyed by developers for many years, and I applaud the Elmores for investing to improve this iconic structure,” Councilman Marks commented.
