Charles Town City Council, Commissioners to discuss planning

May 26, 2006

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - The Jefferson County Commission and Charles Town City Council are to meet June 5 at 7 p.m. at city hall to talk about planning issues, preservation of the county's rural character and other issues, Commission member Jim Surkamp said Thursday.

The meeting follows a controversy over a proposal by the city council to expand an urban growth boundary which would have extended to the Earle Road area where there are farms and historic homes.

City council members eventually abandoned the plan after widespread criticism from county residents and a recommendation from a city attorney that the city not pursue the plan.

County officials have expressed concern about the plan and have wanted to discuss the issue with city officials.
