Recently, about 75 irate people packed a meeting at Bel Air Town Hall to give some public officials a piece of their minds. Many had seen the future of this town of roughly 11,000 souls, and they did not like it. What had caused such concern? Was it the return of COVID? No. A spike in the crime rate? Not that either. No, they dreaded the possibility, as voiced by a local small business owner, that Bel Air was destined into something almost unspeakable. Something far different from the Harford County seat they knew and loved.
Some Bel Air residents fear their town could turn into Towson. That raises some questions.
