Small housing development planned near Bel Air could cause big problems, neighbors warn

When he recently complained to Harford County plans review officials about how a small housing tract planned next to his 30-year-old neighborhood near Bel Air would worsen the flooding his back yard already experiences when it rains, Mario Venetos received a sobering response.

“We probably wouldn’t allow your house to be built today,” Morris “Moe” Davenport, chairman of the county Development Advisory Committee, or DAC, told Venetos.

Venetos and a dozen of his neighbors living on the south side of the Greenridge II neighborhood, off of Route 543 in Fountain Green, appeared during the panel’s mid-January review of a plan for a 17 single-family home development to be called Roberts Crossing.

The 13.5-acre property, just north of the entrance to the Fountain Green Swim Club, has an existing house and is panhandle shaped, with the widest portion of it forested.
