The sale to to the Baltimore County Revenue Authority for $53,950 clears the way for the county agency to sell the property in turn to a developer.
Community leaders have opposed the sale saying the parking is important to the economic viability of adjacent businesses. The authority promised to earmark $100,000 from the sale of the land to go specifically to the Parkville community.
Comptroller Peter Franchot voted against the sale after questioning the appraised value first raised by a state delegate from Parkville.
"Whenever we buy land we're always buying things at the highest appraisal and whenever we sell land we seem to sell for the lowest appraisal," Franchot said Wednesday morning.
