Building proposal going to hearing

August 05, 2004|by GREGORY T. SIMMONS

A proposal to allow some new buildings to contain both homes and businesses where they are not currently allowed in Hagerstown will go to a public hearing later this month.

The change in the zoning regulations would affect areas outside the city's downtown, setting the so-called mixed- use buildings at a maximum of three stories and banning adult bookstores, among other regulations.

Councilman Kristin B. Aleshire criticized the change, saying it creates competition for a type of building already existing downtown, which could draw business away from downtown.
