Have the county’s land use policies adequately balanced growth and the preservation of existing communities and agricultural land?
Kukurin: As our land use continues to change from rural to semi-urban and new development stretches further into once remote areas, we must take a visionary approach when planning and ask ourselves what we want our community to look like 20 years from now. If the continuation of negligent, reckless, irresponsible decisions by Harford County’s elected officials is not stopped, our community will becomes another overly built, traffic congested nightmare. Special interests and large donors’ needs are being put above the best interests of the citizens, destroying our quality of life and it must stop. I believe we can both develop business and save our rural landscape.
