Councilman Will Seek to Block Construction of Towson Gas Station

A key Baltimore County councilman said Wednesday that he will seek to block the construction of a Royal Farms gas station in Towson, a project that has faced vociferous opposition from the local community.

The gas station is one part of a larger project that would see a vacant firehouse on York Road redeveloped under a proposed $8.3 million dollar deal between the county and Caves Valley Partners.

“My job as a county councilman is to listen to the community and in this case to take action to bring some closure to an extraordinarily controversial issue,” said David Marks, a Republican who represents Towson.
