BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Morgan County residents John Webster and Patti Miller spoke to the Morgan County Commissioners on Friday against the proposed development for senior citizens housing next to the old train depot on North Washington Street.
Commission President Glen Stotler said the commission was asked by Pennsylvania developer Judd Roth to support a Small Cities Community Development block grant for the project. Last month, Roth asked the commission to apply for a $500,000 block grant from the West Virginia Development Office and loan the money to him for the property purchase and site work, Commissioner Tommy Swaim said.
Stotler said "no decision will be made today. By law, there must be a public hearing first before the decision is made regarding the block grant."
