For the first time, the Baltimore County government will pay taxpayers' money to a private country club to restrict development on its land, under a deal approved last night by the County Council. The government will pay $2 million to the Country Club of Maryland in Towson. In return, the club agrees to keep 143 acres off limits to development for 25 years. The club will also give the county 45 acres if it ever goes out of business. The agreement, approved by a 5-2 vote, ends a long standoff between the country club and the surrounding community over plans to develop a part of the property.
