Charles Town annexation OK'd

May 23, 2007|by DAVE McMILLION

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Charles Town City Council members unanimously approved a 5.5-acre annexation Monday night that generated concern from one council member last week.

During an emergency council meeting May 14, council member Matt Ward complained that there was not enough information about the annexation proposed by Spruce Hill LLC.

Ward said he thought the annexation was being rushed through the approval process before Thursday's city election.

Ward said Monday night that he now believes the annexation is fair, and he voted for it.

The land is adjacent to a new high school being built along Huyett Road. The site is proposed for commercial use, said Lou Athey, a partner in Spruce Hill LLC.
