Canton Community Association votes on Linwood apartment proposal

On Aug. 5, the board of directors of the Canton Community Association voted to not provide a letter of support for developer Ross Taylor’s proposal to develop a five-story, mixed-use building at 1000 S. Linwood Ave.

The board of directors’ report states that the CCA hosted four public meetings to consider the proposal.

The Baltimore Guide reported on the final public meeting in an Aug. 6 article, “Residents fear parking impact, overall size of proposed Canton apartments.”

The idea behind the letter of support, which the board ultimately declined to provide, was that it would have been a necessary step in convincing City Councilman Jim Kraft to introduce legislation to rezone the property.

The property remains zoned at B-2-2.
