Hundreds of people packed into the Baltimore County Council’s chambers on Monday to lobby for greater fees to be charged to developers to pay for needed parks projects.

Council members are in the early stages of weighing whether to increase the fees that developers pay when they can’t incorporate sufficient green space in their projects. The current fees include rules that have resulted in some projects in Towson — which is booming with redevelopment — to be charged minimal or zero fees for open space.
