Public Input Meeting On Proposed 200-Apartment Development In White Marsh Scheduled For Tuesday, July 18
PERRY HALL - A community input meeting has been scheduled for tomorrow, July 18th, to discuss a proposed new apartment development at The Avenue in White Marsh, Maryland.
This project is separate from the 500-apartment development proposed for the Sears site at the White Marsh Mall.
The proposed development, dubbed "The Avenue at White Marsh Apartments," is planned for 4921 Campbell Boulevard (21236). According to the Department of Permits, Approvals, and Inspections, it includes plans for 200 multi-family apartments. The unit breakdown consists of 13 two bedrooms with a den, 50 two-bedrooms, 90 one-bedrooms, 28 one-bedrooms with a den, and 19 studios.
The meeting is open to the public, allowing residents to voice their opinions and concerns about the project. It will occur at the Community Christian Church at 8009 Corporate Drive in Nottingham, starting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, July 18th.
Baltimore County Councilman David Marks spoke on the upcoming development and the role of community input in the process.
"I never represented the mall until last December, but immediately started taking action to help craft a plan for its future. We assembled a 16-member task force that is close to issuing recommendations for an overlay district to regulate everything from design standards to building heights," Marks said. "The rezoning process begins this fall. I've made it very clear that I will use rezoning to block undesirable projects that have not received final development approval."
Last year, similar community input meetings were held over a proposed apartment project involving 516 units near the White Marsh Mall. The response from the community was largely negative, with many expressing concerns about potential traffic increases and school overcapacity.
Peggy Winchester, the President of the South Perry Hall Blvd Improvement Association, highlighted these concerns, pointing out the current congestion issues on Honeygo Boulevard and the overcapacity in local schools.
"Our worries revolve around the traffic situation. Post 4:00 p.m., it takes about half an hour to cover a five-block distance on Honeygo Boulevard. Adding to that, any high school-going kid is left to attend an already 110% overcrowded school," Winchester said.
