The partnership that is taking over the former Moose Lodge south of Hagerstown wants to reopen it as a restaurant, cocktail lounge and banquet facility, according to papers filed with the Washington County Board of Zoning Appeals.
The Md. 632 Limited Partnership has requested a special exception to use the 24,000-square-foot building at 17105 Downsville Pike as a restaurant and banquet facility.
The property requires a special exception because it is zoned Agricultural.
Ronald Koontz of Creative Investments and local attorney William C. Wantz signed the application, but Koontz refused to comment and Wantz did not return phone calls Thursday.
