  • Comment period for Harford master plan over, for now

    Even though the November deadline for public comments on Harford County's Master Plan and Land Use Element Plan has passed, residents still will be able to give input on it. That is what Director of Planning and Zoning Pete Gutwald told the Abingdon...
  • Curious developments

    Disturbingly enough, there's been relatively little in the way of public comment so far as the latest step in devising a new land use plan for Harford County draws to a close. This process will culminate, after many administrative and political twists...
  • Foes, supporters clash over Plan Maryland

    To its supporters, Gov. Martin O'Malley's Plan Maryland is a long-overdue effort to bring Maryland's disparate programs to promote Smart Growth under one consolidated plan with an agreed-upon set of rules. To its detractors, the plan is a naked power grab...
  • Senate raids Md. land conservation fund

    Unless the House of Delegates reverses a Senate decision, Maryland's legislature will undermine the widely popular effort to create new places for outdoor recreation, as well as efforts to protect Maryland's best farmlands and forests. This decision would...

    Signs of change on a blighted East Baltimore block
    Gone are the plywood-covered door and windows that never seemed to keep the vacant house sealed very long. Gone too is the gaping hole where the first floor should have been — a dungeonlike pit where police say a 13-year-old girl was raped one night...

    Walmart planned south of Bel Air causing citizen alarm, councilman says
    Some Harford County officials may have been reluctant to talk about a Walmart coming to the Emmorton area south of Bel Air when the subject first came up more than a year ago, but the developer of the site off Route 924 and Plumtree Road is moving forward...
  • Does planning matter in Baltimore County?

    Does planning matter in Baltimore County?
    With all the recent press over the proposed redevelopment of the Solo Cup site in Owings Mills, the casual reader would think this is an isolated issue that boils down to one community that will see new traffic patterns or new places to shop. But Solo...
  • Tubman Underground Railroad center on Shore gets funding

    Tubman Underground Railroad center on Shore gets funding
    Harriet Tubman has long inspired a deep sense of pride among Marylanders, especially in the rural communities of the Eastern Shore, where the former slave was born and led dozens to freedom on the Underground Railroad. While her story is taught to...
  • Local officials should quit whining about PlanMaryland

    I'm disappointed by the whining of certain county officials during PlanMaryland discussions at the Maryland Association of Counties conference ("State land-use plan prompts objections," Aug. 20). As a fiscal conservative, I agree with most of...
  • 50 years ago: 'The Homestead' added to Bel Air town limits

    As taken from the pages of The Aegis dated Thursday, July 12, 1962: The Town of Bel Air grew by 249 acres as a result of a property annexation acquired by the Commissioners of Bel Air. The property known as "The Homestead," a 300-acre farm, was divided...
  • Harford County's Master Land Use Plan is tedious, but necessary because it shapes the landscape

    In the coming weeks, the Harford County Department of Planning and Zoning will unveil the master plan for guiding land use in the county in the coming years. Devising this guide, no doubt, has been tedious, making the county reflect its vision will...
  • Some former Harford 'Black Box' employees choose not to return

    Some former Harford 'Black Box' employees choose not to return
    Only a small percentage of employees who once occupied Harford County's "Black Box" in Bel Air will return to the building at 212 S. Bond St., even though it's been declared safe to use again. The three-story building, called the Black Box because of its...
