Baltimore County officials have announced they will move forward with plans to develop a small park in Towson’s Aigburth Manor neighborhood as early as next spring.
Plans for Radebaugh Park, named after the fourth-generation Radebaugh family florist operation on the property where the park will be built, were previously on hold for an engineering study.
After meeting with community members last week, Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz confirmed through a spokeswoman this week that the county will fund the entire demolition of greenhouses and their concrete foundations and renovation of the site, though the cost of the project is not yet known.
The plot, between Aigburth Road and Burke Avenue, has three abandoned greenhouses.
The cost to remove the greenhouses from the property held up early negotiations over the county’s purchase of the land.
The Radebaughs, who said demolition could cost less than $144,000, were not responsible for the demolition under the agreement. Baltimore County officials estimated demolition could cost as much as $500,000.
A $175,000 state grant will help to cover the cost of demolition, according to county officials.
The family, which continues to use an unsold portion of the property for its business, sold the plot to the county with the provision that it would become a park.
County officials announced in June 2015 that they would work to build a park on the parcel.
