The Hagerstown Planning Commission on Wednesday conditionally approved final plats for 88 town houses and single-family homes as part of the Collegiate Acres development.
The plats approved Wednesday include 43 single-family homes and 45 town house lots, according to information provided by Stephen R. Bockmiller, development planner and zoning administrator for the City of Hagerstown.
Hagerstown Planning Commission member Kristin B. Aleshire voted against the plat approval after reading excerpts of comments submitted by the Washington County Public Schools system. The school system's letter indicated the elementary school in the attendance area of the development can not accommodate the additional students it will create.
Bockmiller said the plats would not be subject to the adequate public facilities ordinance introduced Tuesday night by the City Council, and only the City Engineer and State Highway Administration still have conditions for approval.
