From Harford County Councilman Jim McMahan:
County Councilman Capt’n Jim McMahan (Dist. “C”) is planning to introduce legislation at the March 19th council meeting that will place restrictions on the size of box stores on B3 Zoned land.
The legislation provides that “General merchandise and shoppers merchandise structures 75,000 square feet and over shall be developed in accordance with para 267-79 [integrated community shopping center(ICSC)]and shall be subject to board approval in accordance with para 267-68B (Board approval of design standards for special developments).
“Although this change will not affect the current piece of B3 property at MD 924 and Plum Tree Road, it will preclude such outlandish development in the future at other sites,” McMahan said.
