Royal Farms gas station would ruin Towson’s gateway, critics say – Towson Flyer

Towson residents and environmentalists are fighting a proposed 24-hour, 16-pump Royal Farms gas station at the corner of York Road and Bosley Avenue, the site of the old fire station.

At the same time, Councilman David Marks said he’s getting pressure from County Executive Kevin Kamenetz to push the proposal through, although the administration says that’s not accurate.

The gas station, whose developer is the local firm Caves Valley Partners, would sit at the edge of the new Towson overlay district. The district was created with the goal of having new development in downtown Towson meet standards for open space, preserve mature trees, and boost walkability.

Thanks to the county planning department adding language to the legislation that created the district, the Royal Farms project was grandfathered in, even though it doesn’t meet the new standards.

  • Claire Conger

    Royal Farms is a locally family owned business and putting a store/gas station where they want will create jobs especially for the university students.

    That fire station is now a total eye sore.
