Chuck E. Cheese's site plan approved

A Chuck E. Cheese's restaurant got the green light from the Washington County Planning Commission on Monday.

The Planning Commission approved a site plan for the restaurant, which is to be built at the corner of Cole Road and Massey Boulevard outside of Valley Mall in Halfway.

The approval is contingent upon plan review by the City of Hagerstown's annexation committee, county planning officials said.

Planner Misty Wagner-Grillo said the chain plans to build a 28-foot high, 7,868 square foot restaurant.

It is to employ 30 full- and part-time people. The hours of operation at the restaurant, which is geared to youngsters, are to be 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Monday through Thursday and from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Wagner-Grillo said.

A Chuck E. Cheese's spokeswoman has said plans are to open the restaurant by the end of March 2005.

Conservit ATM plan shot down

An ATM planned for only Conservit Inc. customers on the south side of Leslie Drive was shot down Monday by the Washington County Planning Commission. The machine was to be located just off Sharpsburg Pike near an historic house.

Senior Planner Lisa Pietro said the machine was to be owned by Conservit and used for customers expecting to be paid for dropping off scrap.

A man representing Conservit said that rather than tying up traffic near the Conservit building, customers were to be issued bank-type cards when they dropped off scrap and then drive to the ATM and retrieve the money owed to them for hauling in the material. The ATM would not be open for public use, the man said.

The Planning Commission rejected the site plan for the machine, saying the panel lacked the information on the volume of scrap hauled to Conservit.

Planning Commission member George Anikis said there was plenty of room to install such a machine at the back of the property. He said people living in the historic stone house nearby would have to look at the machine.

Save-A-Lot plans for expansion OK'd

Save-A-Lot Foods is planning an expansion to its property on the west side of Prosperity Lane near Williamsport.

The Washington County Planning Commission on Monday approved a site plan for a 32,488 square foot warehouse addition.

Save-A-Lot is a wholesale grocery distribution center.

Greenbrier Baptist Church addition OK'd

The Washington County Planning Commission on Monday approved an addition to Greenbrier Baptist Church. The site is in an agricultural zone on the northeast corner of the Md. 66 and U.S. 40 intersection.

Subdivision given preliminary OK

A 238-unit subdivision on Poffenberger Road received preliminary approval Monday by the Washington County Planning Commission.

The Planning Commission approved the preliminary plat for the development, Claggett's Mill, which is planned for 227 acres on the north and south sides of Poffenberger Road, just west of Antietam Creek.

The commission also granted final plat approval for the first phase of the project, which consists of 87 units to be built on the south side of Poffenberger Road.
