Scorecard Update June, 2024

Friends of Harford (FoH) thanks the Council for withdrawing Bill 24-018, which proposed allowing liquor stores to operate in B1 areas. FoH had several concerns about this bill:

  • A zoning change for one business, described as the reason for this legislation, would affect all of Harford County.
  • Evolving state laws could allow cannabis dispensaries next to liquor stores.
  • Passage of this bill could have created serious problems throughout the B1 districts in the County. 

The Council’s decision to withdraw this legislation is a crucial step in preserving our zoning process, ensuring community input, and maintaining the character of our neighborhoods.
