Planning board OKs Martin's site plan

April 30, 2004|by JULIE E. GREENE

The Hagerstown Planning Commission on Wednesday night approved the site plan for a bigger Martin's Food Market on the site of the former Wal-Mart on Wesel Boulevard, a city planning official said Thursday.

The commission also approved a requested waiver so the project doesn't have to meet the requirements of the forest conservation law, said Stephen R. Bockmiller, development planner/zoning administrator for the city.

The commission required the developer to plant some trees along the side of the property adjacent to Sam's Club and in a grassy oval area behind the future grocery store, Bockmiller said.

The site plan calls for demolishing the 114,746-square-foot former Wal-Mart building to construct a 70,236-square-foot Martin's and three smaller storefronts. There is a smaller Martin's in the adjoining strip shopping center.
