City officials express concerns about request for annexation

City officials had some flooding concerns over a plan to develop a piece of land across the street from South Hagerstown High School.

The 7.7 acres would be drawn into the city under the city's annexation policy and used for a 36-unit apartment complex.

Councilwoman Kelly S. Cromer said she had been contacted about water drainage problems along South Potomac Street that could be exacerbated by the development, although City Engineer Rodney Tissue said it's possible the development could improve the drainage.

The annexation, known as the Crampton Annexation, as well as a 66.6-acre annexation proposal known as the Snook Annexation, is set to be introduced in next week's council voting session. The annexations must be approved in a second vote before taking effect.
