The Bel Air Downtown Alliance, in partnership with the Town of Bel Air, is excited to announce the coming of Downtown Bel Air Information Kiosks.

Earlier this year, the Alliance was awarded a $10,458 grant from the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development to implement a wayfinding plan. In alignment with the Town of Bel Air’s Comprehensive Plan, the remainder of the approved project amount will be contributed by the town. The Board of Town Commissioners approved the $18,000 contract from Printing Lab, a contractor from West New York, NY, earlier on this week on Monday. The four Downtown Bel Air information kiosks will give information about town destinations and activities and are projected to be up in the spring of 2017.

Current locations for the kiosks include Main Street Parking Lot along Main Street, Plumtree Park, Shamrock Park, and Rockfield Park. These location are subject to change. The kiosk on main street is a three face kiosk sign, while the rest would feature a double face kiosk.

The downtown in the Heart of Harford has been experiencing vibrant new growth in business and community. In the past year the downtown welcomed new businesses like Independent Brewing Company, Urban Pearl Boutique and most recently, To Wag For – Pet Boutique and Black Eyed Suzie’s. Bel Air’s main street is also expecting two new businesses, La Cakerie and Julie Ellyn Designs, to open late in October.

The Bel Air Downtown Alliance is a 501(c)(3) non-profit community development organization whose mission is to mobilize stakeholders to invest in Bel Air’s neighborhoods, economy, and quality of life. The Alliance envisions Bel Air’s future as a sustainable community in which people live, work, and play. We attract and welcome diverse neighborhoods where our parks, schools, and commercial centers are vibrant assets that enrich our quality of life.
