Baltimore Co. Council Tables Vote to Scale Back Planned ‘Towson Station’ Royal Farms


By Ethan McLeod, Baltimore Fishbowl

In the latest twist of fate for a very controversial gas station and convenience store proposed for Towson, county lawmakers voted not to take any decisive action last night.

Members of the Baltimore County Council voted 4-3 to table a vote on a resolution that would have barred developers from constructing a 12-pump gas station at the corner of Bosley Avenue and York Road. Councilman David Marks had proposed the measure blocking the inclusion of any pumps at the location, which would have effectively made it a shiny petroleum-less 24-hour convenience store instead.

Many Towson residents had supported his bill, citing fears that adding yet another gas station in the area would create more traffic congestion in an already-crowded thoroughfare. In fact, one group called Save Towson’s Gateway that opposes the project (and supported Marks’ bill) has launched a petition against the gas station, and reportedly came out in full force at the council meeting.
