A member of the Hunter's Run development in Bel Air says he supports Walmart's move because of the added convenience it will bring.
The Hunter's Run community is located a short distance from the proposed Walmart site along MD Route 924.
Dave Green submitted the following letter to the editor:
As a resident of the Hunter’s Run community in Bel Air, I support the construction of the new Walmart store. I believe it will be convenient for the whole community; it will create more local jobs. It will actually simplify entering and exiting the Bright Oaks and Hunter’s Run communities with a proposed new traffic signal at Bright Oaks Drive and Route 924.
The area is appropriately zoned for a store of this type. If the county did not want a large retail store in this area, they should have considered that issue years ago when the zoning for this property was changed. Where was the opposition to the zoning changes then? Walmart is meeting all the requirements for developing their store on this property and I believe they must pay for the traffic control improvements associated with the development of this property.
I see the overall impact of this new Walmart store as very positive and I support it.
