Towson community wants college fest canceled
The Greater Towson Council of Community Associations is recommending that Towson University do away with the spring music festival that draws upward of 10,000 attendees a year, the student-run Towerlight reports.
The suggestion is one of 47 proposals made by the civic association, in response to rising town-gown tensions at the rapidly growing public university.
The Towson Times is also reporting stepped-up police enforcement of disorderly students.
"We've had a lot of problems with Towson students and increased calls for service," future Towson precinct commander Lt. Al Jones tells the community newspaper.
The Times also recently ran a related story about one Towson man's frustration with college students allegedly turning his neighborhood in a "wild" zone when the bars let out after last call.
What's going on over there?
