The new public parking rates and hours instituted in Towson two months ago are already being revised. Baltimore County Revenue Authority’s July 1 changes affected the nearly 4,800 parking spaces the quasi-government agency oversees.
The reason for the revisions is a matter of opinion.
Kenneth Mills Jr., CEO of the Revenue Authority, said he always planned to look at the situation post-changes to make sure they had the desired effect, notably to maximize parking spaces and to avoid gridlock.
But on Aug. 12, State Sen. James Brochin, Del. Stephen Lafferty Councilman David Marks, all of whom represent Towson, sent a letter to county officials requesting revisions to what they called “radical changes” to Towson parking.
