After Loch Raven Village residents mobilized a campaign opposing plans to put a road salt storage dome at a neighborhood school, Baltimore County officials have backed away from the proposal.
Dozens of Loch Raven Village residents dressed in red shirts cheered Monday night when Baltimore County Council Chairwoman Cathy Bevins announced that the salt dome would not be relocated to the Loch Raven Technical Academy. Bevins walked into Monday night’s council meeting waving a red “Halt the Salt” sign.
“It’s the most ridiculous place ever to put a salt dome,” said Bevins, a Middle River Democrat who represents the neighborhood. “It just doesn’t make sense.”
