Residents say rezoning would bring traffic

September 29, 1999

During a public hearing Tuesday, two Hagerstown residents said a requested rezoning for 31.5 acres along South Edgewood Drive next to the Hagerstown Commons shopping plaza would hurt the surrounding neighborhood because it would draw more traffic to the area.

ATW Enterprises Inc. in Aiken, S.C., is requesting the property, which has a residential zoning designation, be zoned for commercial use.

Company representatives said Tuesday they do not have specific development plans for the property.

Another public hearing Tuesday on a request from MKS Development Co. in Williamsport to rezone 7.5 acres near the intersection of Eastern Boulevard and Conrad Court drew no public comment.

MKS is requesting that the zoning designation be changed from residential to commercial.

MKS representatives said they do not have specific development plans for the property.

The City Council is expected to vote on the requests within the next few months.

The city's official record will be left open for 10 calendar days for additional public comment on either rezoning request.


Comments should be sent to the City Clerk, Hagerstown City Hall, 1 E. Franklin St., Hagerstown, MD 21740.
