Fast Track facilitates the issuance of all required commercial permits in a timely manner so that construction can be initiated quickly and all deadlines and commitments can be realized. All requests are subject to review, and the process requires extensive cooperation and communication between the County and the company's representatives.
"Some people claim to have a Fast Track, but Harford County is the first place I've been
involved with that had excellent cooperation between the town, county, and state,"
said a Frito-Lay official who scouted 20 sites before selecting Harford County.
"If they didn't have Fast Track, we wouldn't be there."
