Bryan Road is more like a driveway then a street.

And…? There has to be more to this story. Are the two residential properties located on Bryan Rd demanding the County fix the potholes? That road looks like it hasn’t been serviced since blacktop was invented. Why not make them a part of the Paddocks, then they can pay an HOA to fix the roads? No wait, Havre de Grace services the roads in the Paddocks now, I think, so they would have to be a part of HdG with that extra property tax bill, but their cost of trash pick-up would be covered over 75%... unless we make that road a ‘special’ area, and convince them that ‘special’ is a good thing…

Then whose responsibility would the road be? The county probably doesn’t like the fact that hdg has to travel approx. 200 yards along Bryan Rd from the NE entrance to service the pumping station that went in with all the new development. If hdg takes over that portion, they will no doubt ‘dead end’ it before the little bridge over the creek. But are they allowed to control that area if the one private home on that side (1737) is not a part of the city? Can they force that homeowner to redirect the driveway to connect with Chapel Rd? If only there was an award for ‘passing the buck,’ Harford County would be superstars.
