Development plan sparks debate at meeting

August 05, 2003|by ANDREW SCHOTZ

A concept plan for a development near Fairplay sparked a debate among Washington County Planning Commission members Monday.

The development, called Pashen Estates, is near where Md. 65 meets Md. 63.

Commission member George Anikis questioned whether four lots should share a private road, as a concept map showed. The road might not be maintained under that arrangement, he said.

Anikis read from 1996 minutes that indicated the Planning Commission approved it as a public road.

Anikis also cautioned that there is a steep slope.

Commission member James F. Kercheval, who is a county commissioner, said the county may not want the responsibility of maintaining the road.

The concept plan was not up for a vote. Commission Chairwoman Paula Lampton said the commission overall is "not happy" about the plan, but a majority probably would approve it as it is.
