Charles Town plan sent back to planning commission

August 09, 2006

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Charles Town City Council members agreed Monday night to send a proposed comprehensive plan back to the city's planning commission for review.

The council agreed to send the comprehensive plan back to the planning commission based on a motion made by council member Don Clendening.

Clendening said in his motion that he believes the most logical places for commercial growth for the city should be along U.S. 340, W.Va. 9 and the planned new four-lane W.Va. 9.

The motion follows a recent controversy over an urban growth boundary that the city was considering.

Much of the initial criticism of the expanded growth boundary centered around the proposal to extend a residential growth area to Earle Road, where there are farms and Washington family homes.
