Vote for rural rezoning tentatively scheduled

July 21, 2004|by TARA REILLY

A decision on whether to rezone more than 250,000 of Washington County's rural acres is tentatively scheduled for October.

The Washington County Commissioners on Tuesday discussed a timetable for the vote, as well as the dates of meetings and public hearings on the proposed rezoning.

Discussions and hearings on the issue probably would be held from August through October, according to the tentative timetable.

The proposed rezoning would reduce the number of homes allowed in rural areas. It is part of the county's Comprehensive Plan, which aims to direct growth to areas in which development is encouraged. Those areas are mainly in and around the city of Hagerstown.
