CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Jefferson County Commission members are expected to discuss Thursday taking more time to consider rezoning a former rock quarry near Harpers Ferry that would allow a controversial $250 million office project, although one commissioner said the issue could be decided Thursday. Commission member Rusty Morgan said Tuesday that support seems to be growing in the county to resolve the issue. Morgan said the commissioners could vote Thursday whether to rezone the Old Standard Quarry from agricultural use to commercial use, although that might not be the best way to deal with the proposal.

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - The discussion over whether to allow a controversial $250 million office and hotel project at the former Old Standard Quarry near Harpers Ferry, W.Va., has gone on for months, and a Jefferson County official said Thursday he could see it taking several more. Jefferson County Commissioner Rusty Morgan made the comment Thursday after opponents and supporters continued to talk about the issue with the commission. Two members of the commission said Wednesday they doubted there was support among the commissioners to rezone the 411-acre quarry site along Millville Road to allow the office and hotel project, but the issue seemed to get cloudier Thursday.

CHARLES TOWN, W.VA. - Concerns continued to be raised during a public hearing Tuesday night regarding a proposed $250 million office-space project next to Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. Developers of the project have promoted it as a way to create 6,000 jobs in Jefferson County and give county residents a place to work without having to commute to nearby metropolitan areas. That is important, given that by the year 2010, about 60 percent of the county's work force is expected to go out of the county for work, attorney Jim Campbell said during the Jefferson County Planning Commission hearing at the Charles Town Library.

In 1965, the Rolling Stones complained that they couldn't "get no satisfaction. " In 2007, Mike Deming says satisfaction isn't something he's even looking for. Deming made the comment during a recent interview with me about what he and his company, Demcore Development, are doing in an attempt to revitalize downtown Hagerstown. I'll explain what he meant later. But first, some background. Demcore has purchased a number of buildings in the downtown core, including the Schindel-Rohrer building, the building that once housed the Cellar Door and the building that houses Barnwood Books on South Potomac Street across the street from the main branch of the Washington County Free Library.

CHARLES TOWN, W.VA. - The design of a proposed office building and hotel project near Harpers Ferry National Historical Park could possibly be controlled through the use of proffers, the Jefferson County Commission learned Thursday. The controversial project - which would involve construction of 2 million square feet of office space and a 150-room hotel off Millville Road - has drawn opposition from some people who say it is too close to Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. The 410-acre tract known as the Old Standard quarry site was proposed to be annexed into the City of Charles Town, but the Charles Town City Council rejected the request.
