Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz announced that the County will proceed with the purchase of the 2.36-acre Radebaugh Florist property in Towson, to be converted to a community park. Pursuant to a tentative agreement reached with the property owner last September, the County has now determined that a Phase I environmental study found no issues that prevent the County from completing the purchase.
The 2.36-acre property is located just off of Aigburth Avenue across from 120 E. Burke Ave. The County is purchasing the property with local Program Open Space funds for $1.1 million, a price determined by two independent appraisals. In addition to the purchase price, the County Executive was able to work with state legislators to secure $175,000 to assist with demolition of certain greenhouses contained on the land. “This is great news for the community,” says Delegate Steve Lafferty. “I am pleased to partner with County Executive Kamenetz to provide community space in downtown Towson.”
