A closed-door meeting on the proposed relocation of Walmart is scheduled to take place tonight.
Aaron Tomarchio, Harford County Executive David Craig's Chief of Staff, is expected to attend a meeting between the Abingdon Community Council board and Walmart representatives, his secretary confirmed Monday.
Steve Tobia, a member of the community who has been outspoken about Walmart's plans to shut down the Abingdon store and build a new super store in Bel Air, said Monday members of the county Planning and Zoning office were also likely to attend.
"My concern is that no one else is allowed in there," Tobia said.
Tobia said his understanding is the group will discuss what concessions will be appropriate if and when Walmart moves to the controversial location at Plumtree Road and MD Route 924.
"[Tomarchio] has said that there’s no stopping it," Tobia said of the Walmart move.
County councilman Dion Guthrie told Patch much the same in a previous interview, explaining that the Walmart superstore is allowed based on the area's current zoning.
"I don’t know why it’s all behind closed doors," Tobia said. "I think part of it was because we were kind of rowdy [at the public input meeting]."
