Public Meeting On White Marsh Crematorium Postponed Pending County Legislation To Address Community Concerns
PERRY HALL - The public meeting scheduled for April 25 to discuss the addition of a crematorium at Evans Funeral Home in White Marsh has been postponed.
The Maryland Department of the Environment postponed the meeting after the Baltimore County Council introduced legislation that will bar any crematorium from being built within 500 feet of any residential area.
Bill 23-25 was introduced at the County Council’s April 3 meeting and will be discussed during the Work Session on Tuesday, April 25, at 4 p.m.
The bill addresses concerns raised by the White Marsh-Cowenton Community Association, which created a petition calling on the county to halt the crematorium proposal citing safety concerns.
The final reading and vote on Bill 23-25 will occur at the Legislative Session on Monday, May 1, at 6 p.m.
