City Council members are scheduled to vote on the Port Covington development deal Monday.

Eleven of 15 council members have signed a petition to move the project forward.

Some community activists, including BUILD Baltimore, have asked the City Council to force a vote on the final bill in order to move the project forward. Members of BUILD Baltimore gathered Monday morning urging a quick passage of the project and argued that delaying the deal would discourage future developers from working with the city.

Several City Council members support the move, including Councilman Carl Stokes, who held a press conference Monday announcing his approval.

Stokes previously held concerns about the project and its impact on the community.
