Banner political notes: Developer disagreement in Port Covington; Baltimore County police board; Pikesville Armory plans

August 7, 2023

Baltimore City Council members voted Tuesday to advance a proposal to adjust a boundary in the Port Covington neighborhood so as to exclude a developer from having to pay for inclusion in what’s known as a community benefits district. Formed in 2020 to support the Port Covington neighborhood — where the massive, 235-acre and $5.5 billion Baltimore Peninsula project is located — the community benefits district requires participants to pay a fee to privately fund additional city services such as landscaping, snow removal and security within the boundary. The tax currently is set at 19 cents per every $100 of assessed property value.
