Council approves rezoning requests
By DAN KULIN
The Hagerstown City Council gave final approval Tuesday to two rezoning requests, which the City Planning Commission had recommended against granting.
It was the first time since 1994 the council has gone against the advice of the Planning Commission.
The council approved commercial zoning classifications for land along South Potomac Street across from E. Russell Hicks Middle School, and property at East Baltimore and South Mulberry streets.
Both properties are zoned for residential use.
The council voted 4-1 Tuesday to approve rezoning the property at 154-158 S. Mulberry St., 202 E. Baltimore St. and 208-210 Frederick St., which includes the Corner Pub.
