Planning commission to discuss tower issue at next meeting


The Washington County Planning Commission is scheduled to discuss a cell phone tower and parts of two residential projects at its next meeting.

The commission meets at 7 p.m. Monday in the Washington County Board of Commissioners meeting room at 100 W. Washington St.

The commission may vote on a site plan for a cell phone tower near Hancock.

The 190-foot tower would be on the west side of Stumpf Road, south of Interstate 68 and west of Hancock.

The Board of Zoning Appeals approved a special exception for the tower at its Aug. 6 meeting. Nextel Communication may be a carrier on the tower.

The commission is also scheduled to consider the subdivision plan for section two of the Tammany Heights North development off Virginia Avenue on property along the southeast quadrant of Interstates 81 and 70 and west of U.S. 11.


Section two is comprised of three single-family lots and one duplex, said property owner Lee Downey, a former Washington County Commissioner.

The commission unanimously approved the final plat of the first section of Tammany Heights North at its July meeting.

The first section includes four duplex lots and five single-family lots.

Construction on the first section is scheduled to begin this month, Downey said.

He said the entire project will have at least 60 units.

At the meeting, the commission is also scheduled to discuss plans for 20 townhouse lots that are part of a 520-unit housing development on Robinwood Drive called Rosewood Village.

The lots are part of the first phase of the project, which includes 77 townhouses and 42 elderly living units.

The property is adjacent to Hagerstown Community College.

The property owner is Mansoor Shaool. Shaool and his family own Black Rock Estates, Foxshire Plaza and Manny's Oriental Rugs in downtown Hagerstown.
