I recently read the article concerning the redevelopment effort of the Long Reach Village Center, I would like to voice my support of this effort by the Howard County government.

My family frequents this village center and we have seen over the years a deterioration of the center. There is an urgent need for a change to happen to this center.

With the vacant businesses and a sense of rampant crime, the village center does not seem safe anymore. Thank you for your time.
