Black Rock residents appeal decision to allow development

December 23, 2002|by TARA REILLY

Three residents of Black Rock Estates have appealed a decision by the Washington County Commissioners to approve a special zoning designation that would allow the development's owner to build 595 housing units adjacent to the development.

J. Michael Nye of Ayoub Lane, Nickolas Orfan of Ayoub Lane and Kurt Cushwa of Sasha Boulevard filed the appeal Thursday in Washington County Circuit Court.

William C. Wantz, the attorney for the residents, said Friday he could not reveal the reasons for the appeal at this time.

He said he would discuss the reasons after he presents them to the court several weeks from now.

County Attorney Richard Douglas could not be reached for comment Friday.

Black Rock Estates owner Manny Shaool received approval for a Planned Urban Development (PUD) zoning designation by the County Commissioners on Nov. 19. A PUD will enable him to build more units per acre than county regulations normally allow.

Shaool's plan calls for 265 single-family homes, 50 two-family units, 100 townhouses and 180 condominium units on 220 acres near Black Rock Golf Course east of Hagerstown. The site borders farmland.
