Hearing not necessary for drinking establishment

August 18, 2005|by GREGORY T. SIMMONS

A hearing on a proposed drinking establishment on South Potomac Street that had been scheduled for Wednesday night was canceled after officials realized it wasn't necessary.

The proposed business would be at 28 S. Potomac St. The building also is known as the Schindel-Rohrer building and will be the target of $540,000 in property tax credits recently awarded by the governor's office.

The building is owned by 28 S. Potomac St. LLC, whose resident agent is Donna Deming. The project is being managed by Hagerstown-based Demcore Development, whose president is Mike Deming.

28 S. Potomac St. LLC purchased the building from Mohammad Azadi for $905,000 in April, according to state tax records on the Internet.

City Development Planner/Zoning Administrator Stephen Bockmiller said Wednesday the item was pulled from the agenda because the plans for the drinking establishment would be joined with a restaurant, and the floor area of the restaurant is more than half of the total combined floor area.

Bockmiller said under those circumstances, no special exception was needed in the C3 zoning district where the business would go.
