WASHINGTON COUNTY - Prompted by a circuit judge's uncertainty, the Washington County Board of Zoning Appeals met Tuesday to discuss the uniqueness of a proposed new Washington County Hospital.
For about 20 minutes, board members listed what they consider unique aspects of the project, including proximity to major roads, topography and access to public water and sewer service.
The board's clarification session was held to satisfy a question Washington County Circuit Judge W. Kennedy Boone III raised last month in upholding two zoning variances.
In December 2005, the zoning board approved the variances, which would aid a plan to build a new Washington County Hospital on Robinwood Drive. The hospital would move from its current home on East Antietam Street.
