Baltimore County Councilman David Marks released a statement that he will protect land Around Franklin Square Drive area as Neighborhood Commons for future development

“This morning, I am announcing I will recommend protection of 275 acres of land in the Franklin Square Drive area as Neighborhood Commons, or open space, zoning.

“This is the first time this restrictive zoning has been applied in this area of Baltimore County. It provides added protection from development.
