What would you do to spruce up Perry Hall's main commercial district? Would you like to see more holiday decorations around the community? 

County Councilman David Marks has created a Downtown Perry Hall Beautification Committee to address those issues and more impacting the area surrounding Belair, Ebenezer and Joppa roads, according to a new release. To participate in the committee, residents and business owners may email Marks' office at dmarks@baltimorecountymd.gov or call 410-887-3384. The  Downtown Perry Hall Facebook page will also provide updates.

"We should have more landscaping, trees and community landmarks in Downtown Perry Hall, and as the holidays draw nearer, a display that showcases Perry Hall's spirit, just like Towson and Parkville have decorations," Marks stated in the release. "For anyone who wants a more attractive Downtown Perry Hall, this is a great opportunity to get involved." 

Marks stated that the Perry Hall Improvement Association, the Perry Hall/White Marsh Business Association and business owners are expected to join in the effort. 

The committee will focus on an area including Perry Hall's commercial revitalization district, a zone designated by Marks and other public officials for economic assistance. Approved in May 2011, businesses in the zone are eligible for special financing, free design services and other forms of county assistance.

Since August 2012, new structures in the zone are also subject to the  Baltimore County Design Review Panel, which includes architects and engineers.
