Bank zoning variance approved



The Washington County Board of Zoning Appeals Wednesday approved one of two variances for property at 18233 Maugans Ave., which is adjacent to a planned First National Bank of Greencastle branch, Chairman Robert Veil said Thursday.

A request for a variance to reduce the buffer between the lot line and a nearby dwelling from 25 feet to 8.5 feet was denied, Veil said. William Wantz, a Hagerstown attorney representing a neighbor, spoke against the variance, Veil said.

The board approved a request for a variance to reduce the front yard setback from 40 feet to 26 feet, Veil said.

The bank may use the property for a future branch expansion, a bank spokeswoman said Monday.
