Harford County Planning and Zoning's most recent draft of the Master Plan-Harford NEXT proposes expanding the Development Envelope in Fallston to the corner of Mountain Road and Harford Road, Chapter 2, page 28.
The Development Envelope allows for more intense zoning.
Increased and intense development in this area will further stress the infrastructure and has the potential to set a dangerous precedent for other agricultural zoned properties in Harford County.
Take action now by signing this petition and opposing development expansion. Speak out now. Thank You!
Dear Decision Maker,
I do not support expansion of the Development Envelope in Fallston at Harford Road and Mountain Road as proposed in the Harford NEXT Master Plan draft.
The area cannot support more intense development and adding Agricultural zoned property into the Development Envelope sets a dangerous precedent for land use in all of Harford County.
Please keep Fallston rural and focus on revitilization efforts within the county's current Development Envelope.

The goal of the Keep Fallston Rural petition was to start a dialogue with decision makers about the HarfordNEXT master plan process and proposed development envelope expansion. This online petition offered the public an easy way to provide input so we could accurately gauge public sentiment prior to discussing the master plan process with the decision makers.
