Baltimore County has announced that they will preserve 38 acres of publicly owned forested land in Perry Hall. County officials believe this to be the largest preservation of open green space in that community in more than a decade.
The land will be protected from development and it at two locations: about 8 acres in western Perry Hall and nearly 30 acres north and south of Indian Rock Park. In an announcement of the land reclassification, County Councilman David Marks said he had worked with County Executive Kevin Kamenetz for the past year to preserve the land.
"Not only are we protecting green space in two distinct regions of Perry Hall, but we are preserving an area larger than the acreage at Perry Hall High School," said Marks, a Republican from Perry Hall. "It is a milestone for the Perry Hall community, and it comes at almost no cost to Baltimore County's taxpayers."
