The Hagerstown City Council will hold a public hearing Tuesday for a proposed annexation on the North End. The city is considering annexing the approximately 2-acre site of the former Long Meadow Bowling Alley and Eclipse Nite Club. Members of the public will be able to comment on the annexation at the 7 p.m. city council meeting, according to city documents. Adjacent to the Long Meadow Shopping Center, the property is owned by Aristodemos Capital Group LLC. City Comprehensive Planner Stuart Bass said annexing the land does not approve any plans for the property.

Two proposed annexations to the City of Hagerstown and one proposed annexation to the Town of Keedysville cleared a hurdle last week when the Washington County Commissioners granted express approval for the zoning changes associated with the annexations. One proposed city annexation is part of the Pangborn Corp. property on Pangborn Boulevard at the north end of Hagerstown. Part of the Pangborn property is already in the city, but the owner has requested annexation of the other 6.55 acres in preparation for selling the property.

HAGERSTOWN -- Despite objections from one council member who is concerned about the spread of strip malls in the area, the Hagerstown City Council on Tuesday approved the annexation of the Doub Farm property at the intersection of U.S. 40 and Interstate 70. One project that had been proposed for the Doub site -- Hagerstown Towne Centre -- was set to move forward in October 2008, but the Washington County Commissioners declined to grant express approval...

HAGERSTOWN -- When the Hagerstown City Council this week discussed a proposed annexation of the Doub property, known as the Doub Farm, much of the conversation centered around "big box stores. " The discussion Tuesday about the property at the intersection of U.S. 40 and Interstate 70 east of Hagerstown broached the question of whether such development suited the city's vision. Councilwoman Ashley Haywood expressed the opinion that the concept of a retail development is "contrary to our economic vision.

HAGERSTOWN -- The city and county governments failed Tuesday to agree on how to encourage commercial growth in Halfway's Hopewell Valley. During a joint meeting, the government bodies debated the best way for the city to extend water service. For years, the city has insisted on annexing outside land in exchange for water service -- either right away or once the land becomes contiguous to city boundaries. The city has proposed exempting Hopewell Valley, a business-heavy area, from the policy in exchange for 50 percent of the tax revenue the city would have received if the property were annexed and the owner paid city taxes.

HAGERSTOWN -- A request for Hagerstown to annex nearly 142 acres near Interstate 70 was back before the city council Tuesday. The request has been amended since last year, when a developer and plans for a large shopping center were attached. Now, the developer is gone and the petitioners are asking only to be part of the city. In October 2008, the Washington County Commissioners declined to support a rezoning that would have allowed the project to move forward. Instead, development must wait five years if the city annexes the land.
