The bill, sponsored by Councilman David Marks, passed at the meeting. But it is being opposed by Towson community leaders who say the bill was narrowly crafted to benefit Caves Valley Partners, owners of the Towson City Center.
"I'm not a fan of proliferation of signage everywhere, but quite frankly when you look at projects like Towson City Center and some of the other buildings in Towson, they're the only game in town," Marks told Patch.
Community leaders, including members of the Greater Towson Council of Community Associations, say there would be nothing stopping people like the Towson City Center's owners from seeking zoning variances, and that a new law wasn't necessary.
We want to know what you think. Was the bill the right thing to do? Or does it set an unwelcome precedent, as some community leaders claim?
