WHITE MARSH, MD—The Baltimore County Council on Monday night unanimously passed Bill 52-23, which restricts new construction of apartments near White Marsh Mall.

In recent weeks, plans had surfaced to build numerous apartments near both White Marsh Mall and The Avenue at White Marsh, prompting backlash from community members and elected officials alike.

Bill 52-23 repeals earlier legislation that allowed for apartments in an area east of White Marsh Mall. That has led to two proposals totaling over 500 additional units.

“Thank you to my colleagues for supporting Bill 52-23 to restrict apartments east of the White Marsh Town Center,” said Councilman David Marks.

“This is a short-term measure that addresses the immediate impact of more than 1,000 units that have been proposed in the White Marsh Town Center since last year,” said Councilman Marks last week. “The longer-term approach should be to consider and possibly enact the recommendations of the White Marsh Town Center Task Force. You can view this report at https://www.perryhallmaryland.org. I would like to thank chair Pat Keller and all members for their work.”

community meeting is scheduled on that report on Tuesday, September 26 at 6 p.m. at Community Christian Church (8009 Corporate Drive).
