From Harford County government:
As the result of the impact of BRAC to Harford County and the greater Baltimore area, particularly with regard to the demand for housing and commercial development, Harford County Executive David R. Craig is establishing a Banking and Finance Commission to study the current banking regulatory environment as it pertains to residential and commercial development projects.
The Commission will be charged with making studying the current financial picture for Harford County and the Greater Baltimore Region and make recommendations on how to improve business access to capital markets.
The announcement of the establishment of the Banking and Finance Commission will take place Tuesday, November 16 at 11 a.m. in the Harford County Government Administration Building in Bel Air.
Craig, members of the Harford County Council, and members of the newly established Banking and Finance Commission will be at the announcement.
Joan Ryder says
We don’t have the infrastructure for 9000+ additional homes. This is going to lead to more county debt in the form of bonds for
handouts for these developers. The banks that sit on the new board should be leaned on to lend the money and finance the developers — not our County! We are already at the debt ceiling!!
Artful Dodger says
Joan, pack it in baby. Your C.E. pick lost, and now it’s just sour grapes being thrown at our current AND future C.E. Your comments would mean something if you hadn’t been so “out front” in trying to defeat David Craig!
OH my says
I think this maybe a great idea, But also Mr.Craig if you read this, What about the people that are loosing there homes to forclosure? Oh I guess that doesn’t matter, Thank Goodness you have a great person in Havre De Grace , that has freely helping families, Which great. Oh yes they aren’t even getting paid for it.
