PERRY HALL, MD—Baltimore County Councilman David Marks on Friday announced that he would be seeking to pause development on Gerst Farm in Perry Hall.
“This morning, I informed the developer of the Gerst Farm project that I will not bring Resolution 80-20 forward for a vote on Tuesday.
“As a resident of Perry Hall for 42 years and the longest-serving President of the Perry Hall Improvement Association, I care deeply about this community. I listen to my constituents, and will work to improve any development that is built here. I am requiring a pause so the developer can address issues raised at the work session.
“Over the next few weeks, I will use the time to engage the public through three Zoom meetings that will discuss different issues that affect the quality of life of residents along Gerst Road: Transportation, Open Space, Community Amenities. These recommendations will form the basis for my discussions with Baltimore County and any resolution that advances development of the Gerst property.
