Planning panel OKs 3 projects

November 04, 2003|by ANDREW SCHOTZ

Three subdivisions north of Hagerstown, totaling about 260 units, received unanimous approvals from the Washington County Planning Commission at a meeting Monday.

The three were among eight proposed projects put on hold while the county engineer's office studied the area around Longmeadow Road and Maugans Avenue as a whole, Acting Planning Director Steve Goodrich said after the meeting.

When the study ended, some of the others were approved, Goodrich said. A few are awaiting approval.

During the meeting, the Planning Commission gave preliminary and final plat approval and preliminary and final forest conservation approval to Paradise Manor, a 106-lot subdivision of single-family houses. They are to be built on 101 acres on the east side of Paradise Church Road, north of Woodhaven Drive.

The commission gave preliminary plat approval to Paradise Heights, section A, a 55-lot subdivision of single-family and semi-detached houses. They would be built on 32 acres around Paradise Church Road.

The commission also gave preliminary plat and forest conservation approval to Maple Valley Estates, sections C, D and E. The plan calls for 102 single-family houses on 48 acres, east of Paradise Church Road and south of Woodhaven Drive.

Each developer told the commission Monday that his project would take between three and five years to build.
