Historic Preservation Program
Since its incorporation as a town in the 18th century, Bel Air has been a central part of Harford County development and history. To preserve this heritage, the Town Historic Preservation Program seeks to provide assistance in preserving architecturally significant properties and focus attention on community history. These resources serve as visible reminders of Town history and help to maintain and enhance the character of the community fostering a sense of civic pride and an appreciation of a shared heritage among citizens.
Historic Preservation Commission
The Historic Preservation Commission
reviews and recommends historic designation of applicable sites to the Bel Air Board of Town Commissioners for designation by resolution. The Commission also reviews proposed plans for renovation, additions, or demolition of designated historic sites to assure protection of historic resources.
