A Lutherville woman wants other Baltimore County communities to be aware of a bill recently introduced in front of the Baltimore County Council.

Bill 3-24, a mixed-use development zoning bill, was introduced last week by County Council Chairman Izzy Patoka on behalf of County Executive Johnny Olszewski.

The legislation proposes rezoning certain aging, underutilized, or abandoned malls or shopping centers to a mix of commercial and residential.
