Approximately 300 senior citizen town homes will be built in addition to an assisted living retirement home. Besides the Walmart Super Store, a Starbucks, and a Wendy's will be built in addition to numerous other businesses. Walmart is funding the massive project and will turn part of Belair Road into a six-lane highway and will add four new intersections and stop lights to assist in managing the traffic.
he center of the community is generally considered to be Fallston High School or the Parks and Recreational complex. A multi-use Senior Center/Recreation Facility is currently under construction as an addition to the Parks & Rec complex.
