The lawn in front of Baltimore County schools’ headquarters, which is a popular sledding hill, will be “downzoned” to deter future development on it, said Councilman David Marks. He also plans to downzone a strip of land on the western edge of GBMC along Charles Street.
Marks will recommend applying Neighborhood Commons zoning to 12 acres at the Greenwood Mansion, which is owned by the school system. The zoning will prohibit any development at the lawn that slopes downward to Charles Street. Should the school system sell any part of the property, the zoning would need to be changed before development could occur.
