The Washington County Commissioners will hold a special workshop Monday to review the county's plan to rezone approximately 250,000 rural acres.
The meeting is to take place from 9 a.m. to noon in the commissioners' meeting room at the Washington County Administration Building, 100 W. Washington St., Hagerstown.
The meeting is open to the public.
A purpose of the rezoning proposal, which would affect approximately 250,000 rural acres, is to keep major growth from springing up in rural areas by reducing the number of homes allowed on such properties.
The county also said the rezoning plan would direct growth to the Urban Growth Area, an area where growth is encouraged. Much of that area is around the city of Hagerstown.
