Law would rezone land residential

December 24, 1998

Hagerstown City Council members are expected to introduce a law in late January that would rezone 3.13 acres off North Burhans Boulevard for residential use.

No members of the public commented during a public hearing on the proposed rezoning at Tuesday night's regular session of the mayor and council.

The owners, A&J Realty Corp., of Hagerstown, want to change the use from industrial restricted, said Matt Davis, a city planner.

William Wantz, A&J's attorney, said the land is too small for industrial uses and lacks direct highway access.

The Hagerstown Planning Commission voted on Nov. 18 to recommend the 3.13 acres be rezoned for residential use based on a mistake in the original zoning and a change in the character of the neighborhood, according to a Planning Department memo.

The council already approved rezoning 3.14 acres to the south that A&J Realty owns from industrial to commercial.

The record will be left open for 10 calendar days if the public wants to comment on the latest rezoning request. Comments can be sent to the Planning Department, City Hall, Council Chambers, 1 E. Franklin St., Hagerstown, MD 21740.
