HAGERSTOWN --Â A proposed landscaping business along Md. 34 about a half-mile west of Boonsboro was a topic of discussion during Monday night's Washington County Planning Commission meeting.
Despite concerns that the land lies in the "gateway" to Antietam National Battlefield, planning commission members approved a site plan for Custom Landscaping.
The site near Monroe Road has been partially developed, including establishment of a pet crematory, said Ed Schreiber of Frederick Seibert and Associates, a civil engineering firm in Hagerstown.
The landscaping business being eyed for the site includes two buildings, one of which would be a landscape retail shop, said Schreiber, who represents Michael Van Fleet, who is proposing the business.
