As Towson University celebrates its 150th anniversary, the former teachers college continues to grow, adding programs and students.
But that growth is sparking conflict in surrounding Baltimore County neighborhoods. Even as campus leaders fine-tune a campus master plan and determine where to house and teach students â€” including an extra 2,700 expected over the next 10 years â€” neighbors are complaining about problems with traffic, parking and rowdy students.
“As the university gets larger and larger, every year there are one or two or three issues that come up,” said Jerry Truelove, who heads a university relations committee for Rodgers Forge, a neighborhood abutting the campus.
