The President’s Letter
I was very excited when our Councilman, Tom Quirk, introduced legislation allowing businesses in Catonsville to have live music! After all, this is Music City Maryland! Previous to the amendment, most of Fredrick Road was not zoned properly for the music. This is just another example of Catonsville changing for the better!
Here is the article from The Sun;
Live music is now allowed in Music City, Maryland, as Catonsville is dubbed, as well as Arbutus, and businesses won’t have to pay extra permitting fees for it.
Amendments to Baltimore County’s zoning regulations, proposed by County Councilman Tom Quirk, passed unanimously at the council meeting Monday night. County zoning previously barred such performances in those areas.
Effective Oct. 21, businesses in the Arbutus and Catonsville commercial revitalization districts can host live performances after obtaining a use permit from the director of the Baltimore County Department of Permits, Approvals and Inspections.
Amendments made to the bill at the County Council’s work session Oct. 2 “essentially make the bill much more streamlined,” said Quirk, an Oella Democrat, at the meeting.
See you around the ‘Ville!
