To an outsider, this story may have little relevance; however, to those of us who are interested in the topic of urban sprawl or for those who live in northern Baltimore County, this story rings true. Call it a vignette of the bigger picture of keeping rural places rural and urban life contained. This article has all the qualities of local news: names of local roads, residents, and community organizations. While short, I believe the article serves its purpose of keeping a larger, front-page story alive in the news. Preventing urban sprawl in northern Baltimore County is a hot topic for residents, and it's important for news sources to report stories that affect the lives of their audience.
