Councilman Marks announces task force, community meeting to explore future of Gerst Road park site

NOTTINGHAM, MD—Baltimore County Councilman David Marks on Tuesday announced the creation of a task force to recommend uses at the new 22-acre park property on Gerst Road, formerly known as the Bierman Farm.

The task force will be led by Greg Heitner, the Fifth District representative to and chair of the Baltimore County Board of Recreation and Parks. Heitner lives in the community adjacent to the park property.

“The purpose of this task force is to help provide recommendations as the county explores future uses for this property, the fifth new park in Perry Hall since 2010,” said Councilman Marks. “I have personally said that my preference is for very little construction so this remains a quiet, largely-wild area that provides peace of mind for residents.”

Additionally, there will be a Zoom meeting open to the public on Tuesday, August 23rd at 7:30 p.m. That meeting is accessible here:

“I would like to thank Councilman Marks and the county administration for their vigilance in preserving this property from development,” said Heitner. “Our task force largely includes neighbors and community stakeholders, such as the White Marsh Recreation Council that worked hard to save this property.”
