Under a bill proposed at Monday’s meeting, the park named after the famed Confederate general would be renamed Lake Roland Park.
According to WBAL-TV, the park is located in Baltimore County, but the city has to approve the renaming because it has title to the land.
In the wake of the Charleston shooting and call to remove the Confederate flag from South Carolina’s state house grounds, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake named a commission to study whether to rename Confederate symbols in Baltimore City. SRB previously indicated she would support renaming the park.
