From the office of Harford County Councilman Jim McMahan:
Farmers Markets will return to Bel Air April 9th
One issue I receive more complaints about is the unsightly commercial yard signs that proliferate the public rights of way on our State, County and Town road ways. For more than a year I have been working on a local solution but fortunately the current session of the legislature has helped by passing HR 289 and SB410. This legislation will finally put some teeth into the litter law as it pertains to these unsightly signs. These bills in no way infringe upon proper signs on private property.
Finally the topic of the week is all the unfounded rumors regarding the construction of a super Walmart at 924-Plumtree and 24. This area is where Councilmatic Districts “B” and “C” meet so both Councilman Woods and I have concerns. FACTS to relate to date: Walmart agents met with Harford County Planning and Zoning on March 7 for a fact finding meeting to see what State and County requirements would be IF that site were to be considered. They were told the first step would be for Walmart to obtain a traffic study to include 20 different intersections. Walmart must pay for the study and then submit it to P & Z for review by State Highways and Harford County DPW officials. This site is only one of SEVERAL being considered by Walmart for future expansion. You can bet I will follow this.
