While the public health crisis involving the coronavirus continues to develop, our community is working hard to keep stability and hope. For those affected physically within Harford County, I wish them and their loved ones the best during their recovery period.
As a community, now is the time to have deep thought on how this might affect us all down the road. At the Alliance, we are working diligently to promote our downtown community businesses. We’ve been collecting and adding resources to best help our business community during this time of need. We don’t know how long the State of Emergency issued by Governor Hogan will last, but it’s the proactive measures we take now, that will keep our community sustainable.
Through your membership, you task us to carry out the mission, and that we take initiatives which support the Downtown Bel Air community, during the good and bad times. I assure you that my staff and I are working to find ways to do just that. Below you’ll find resources that can help both members of the community and businesses.
As more initiatives progress, we will keep you updated.
