The Hagerstown Planning Commission on Wednesday approved a site plan for a convenience store at the Dual Highway Amoco, according to the Hagerstown Planning Department.

The owner of the gas station wants to build a 1,500-square-foot convenience store at the 1760 Dual Highway gas station next to the Red Horse Steak House. The Amoco is owned by Clear Spring Limited Partnership.

The approval was contingent on two stipulations

Maryland State Highway Administration officials want the plan for entrances off Redwood Circle changed, planning officials said. The other condition dealt with landscaping, they said.

Commission members Alfred W. Boyer, James Stone, Fred Kramer and Fred Nugent voted for the site plan.

Chairman Doug Wright said Friday he voted no because the commission wasn't presented with a final plan.

Commission members Martha Cornwell and Dennis Miller were absent, according to the planning department.

The commission also voted to recommend that City Council members approve rezoning 3.14 acres next to the quarry along North Burhans Boulevard because the neighborhood has changed, according to the planning department.


A&J Realty of Hagerstown requested the land be rezoned from industrial to commercial.

The recommendation was passed on a 3-0 vote with Wright and Boyer abstaining. Boyer abstained because he will consider the matter as a council member. Wright abstained because he missed the public hearing on the case.
