Harford council OKs bills to relieve school crowding

The Harford County Council approved two bills last night to help relieve school crowding and monitor public facilities in the fast-growing jurisdiction.

The council voted 5-2 to halt approvals of preliminary construction plans for housing in areas where schools exceed 115 percent of capacity - or are projected to reach that level within five years.

Members also voted 5-2 to form an advisory board to regularly review growth patterns to keep home development in line with school construction.
