Harford County Planning and Zoning officials have been making their rounds to different community councils, providing information about a pilot program that started Oct. 1. Harford County is launching a volunteer program to remove unsightly yard signs from the rights of way at intersections across the county. In addition to a traffic hazard by blocking the sight lines of drivers, they are an invasion into landscape everyone should be able to enjoy. The signs are illegal and the county is coordinating volunteers to follow established guidelines, and remove the signs. In the future the illegal signs can carry up to a $25 fine each. The county program will coincide with a state program that will involve removing signs and a fine for those individuals or businesses that violate. The sign law has been in existence for years but until now has lacked the proper enforcement and ability for the Town, County or State to levy fines.
The Bel Air Cultural Arts Commission is working on an exciting project to install a bronze Bobcat sculpture at Bel Air High School. The sculpture will be located at the entrance to the new athletic fields and be dedicated in honor of Coach Al Cesky. The commission needs to raise $60,000 total and are currently half way there. They need another $30,000 to make this project a reality. A family with deep ties to BAHS has offered to match anyone’s contributions dollar for dollar!!
