Towson Mews, a proposed development of 35 townhouses with two-car garages on 1.2 acres in East Towson, received a chilly reception at a community input meeting Monday night.
Many residents of the historically black community, within walking distance of downtown Towson, questioned the density of the project, for which the developer, Evergreene Cos., of Chantilly, Va., is seeking Baltimore County Council approval as a planned unit development. The roughly 2,000-square-foot, three-story townhouses with three bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms and rear-loading garages, would be located off Towsontown Boulevard at Jefferson and East Pennsylvania avenues, within sight of the new Cinemark movie theater complex.
A crowd of about 50 people at the East Towson Carver Community Center peppered project officials with questions about the size of the project and the potential influx of new neighbors, cars and traffic.
