The Village Ecosystem

Speaking of village centers, there's been glimmers of life at Oakland Mills where a new barbershop and a new Second Chance Saloon seem to be off to good starts.

But then we happened to be standing in the grocery line at Food Lion, where the staff was complaining about moves to cut back on their hours.

It was a reminder to us of just how fragile these village center ecosystems can be.
