City planners will review townhouse plan
By DAN KULIN / Staff Writer
A proposed 72-unit expansion of the Eastridge Townhomes off Eastern Boulevard is expected to be discussed during a Wednesday meeting of the Hagerstown Planning Commission.
The proposed development would include 38 two-story townhouses and 34 one-story townhouses, according to plans submitted to the city Planning Department. Each single-story townhouse would have a garage, according to the plans.
The development would go on a roughly 13.5-acre wooded lot along East Ridge Drive and between Eastern Boulevard and Tracy's Lane. About 2.6 acres of the property would remain wooded under the proposal.
The proposal will be reviewed by the Planning Commission and ultimately will go before the City Council for approval.
Council's approval is needed is because the property is zoned C-2 commercial, and the developer is seeking approval of the Planned Unit Development, or P.U.D., overlay, for the development plan.
