Harford County's comprehensive rezoning - stalled by an executive veto last month - could get restarted under a measure introduced last week in the County Council.

The council brought up a bill drafted by County Executive David R. Craig, which would re-examine zoning-change requests that had been voted on by the council. Craig had rejected the council's heavily amended zoning bill but left officials in a quandary because the zoning code does not offer guidance in the event of a veto.

Under the measure introduced last night, no new applications for land changes would be accepted, and the council would hold at least one more public hearing to discuss rezoning concerns.

The bill will first face its own public hearing next month, and some council members said they were wary of the administration's idea. The council could reject the bill with four out of six votes.
