Opponents of a proposed commercial and retail development in downtown Towson that is centered around a Royal Farms gas station have organized a letter writing campaign aimed at stopping the project.

The effort seeks to convince Baltimore County Councilman David Marks, who represents Towson, to pull the plug on the proposed development by moving to amend a regulatory measure the development must have to move forward, said Sharon Walker, a Towson resident who organized the campaign.

The campaign by the Towson Gateway Planning Group began earlier this month and asks members of 33 Towson-area community associations to send letters to Marks asking him to amend the measure.

The campaign’s core group includes about 15 people who live and work in Towson, Walker said.

“I felt this was important because a lot of my neighbors who are smart, aware people believe [the proposed Royal Farms] is a done deal and it’s not, but time is running out,” said Walker, who is also a member of the West Towson Neighborhood Association. “I really wanted to get that message out, that if you care about this it’s not a done deal completely.”
