Councilman Marks seeks pause on Gerst Farm development, will hold three community meetings

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.
