The Owings Mills Mall closed for good back in January and has since been gutted, but final plans for the location have yet to be determined.
Monday, Councilman Julian Jones gave the community a chance to weigh in on its future.
"It's very important that whatever happens, it has the community support so everybody has a vested interest in it," Jones said.
He wants his constituents to be heard when it comes to the future of Owings Mills Mall.
"Their input is important," he said. "Their input is not guaranteed in this process if it were not for these community meetings."
And the community was certainly vocal.
There are rumors that a Walmart Superstore could anchor a shopping development at the site, located at 10300 Mill Run Circle in Owings Mills. However, two Walmart locations exist within approximately 3 miles of the site.
Several residents expressed concern over adding a Walmart Superstore. They say the influx of people from outside areas could clog up their communities.
"We had over 250 people and 250 people have at least 260 different ideas so that challenge is that make sure we bring that together," Jones said.
