Defunct coal-fired plant towers to be ‘imploded’; Baltimore County weighs proposal to replace with almost 300 townhomes

August 19, 2022

Crane Generating Station, and comes as Baltimore County planners are weighing a request by property owner Forsite Development Inc. to extend public water and sewer lines to the property.
