Community wins legal battle against ‘illegal boarding house’ – Baltimore Sun

Baltimore County Administrative Law Judge Lawrence Stahl has ruled that a house at 7515 Knollwood Road in Towson is illegally operating as a boarding or rooming house.

Stahl ruled Tuesday that the house, located off Burke Avenue, has more unrelated people living there than allowed under county law, which says no more than two unrelated people can live in a single-family dwelling.

Stahl fined the owners $1,000 in civil penalties and said it would placed as a lien on the five-bedroom property if not paid within 30 days. He also ordered the owners to give the county Department of Permits, Approvals and Inspection the names of all current residents, including a description of their motor vehicles if any and the license tag numbers of those vehicles.

Towson zoning study approved – Baltimore Sun

Without discussion, the Baltimore County Council took the first step Monday toward creating a new zoning category for downtown Towson.

The council voted 7-0 to approve a resolution directing the council’s planning board to develop recommendations for the zone, which would likely cover the commercial business district that is targeted for redevelopment.

The planning board will be required to hold at least one public meeting.

Boosters say growing Towson needs its own development rules – Baltimore Sun

With a wave of new high-rise housing and growth in retail, night life and entertainment offerings, Towson is becoming an urban area different than anything Baltimore County has ever seen.

The evolution is so dramatic that some boosters contend Towson needs its own rules governing development.

“Towson stands apart,” said Councilman David Marks, a Republican who represents the area. “In most counties, [Towson] would be its own city. We need to start treating it that way.”

Projects must comply with traditional zoning rules that critics say don’t jibe with what the county is trying to achieve in Towson: a bustling, walkable, urban community. As a result, developers get bogged down in seeking exceptions to requirements that dictate a certain number of parking spaces, for instance, or that limit housing density.

Meeting on Towson Circulator slated for Dec. 9 – Baltimore Sun

NOTE: New location

Towson Chamber of Commerce

Preliminary recommendations for a Towson Circulator will be the focus of a community meeting Tuesday, Dec. 9, at 6 p.m. in the Baltimore County Council chambers.

The original idea was a free bus providing transportation in the core of Towson, but Fifth District Baltimore County Councilman David Marks, who represents Towson, said that during meetings held since summer, that idea has changed a bit.
