GREENCASTLE, Pa. - Antrim Township supervisors decided no action was the best action on Tuesday evening after finding a developer made a few extra changes to its already approved plans. The developer, Molly Pitcher LLC of Hagerstown, asked board approval for changes made to a roadway in its proposed 500-lot planned residential development (PRD) along U.S. 11, when supervisors noted the developer also moved two lots in the plan. Supervisors were divided as to whether moving the two lots was a "significant" change in the plans and asked Township Solicitor John Lisko to look into the issue before they would approve any changes.

One of the issues to be resolved is how much capacity the City of Charles Town's sewer plant has for the development. Paul Raco, head of the Jefferson County Department of Planning and Zoning and Engineering, said he wrote a letter to the state Department of Environmental Protection requesting information about the plant's capacity, but has not received a reply.

HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. -- The Harpers Ferry Flea Market is going the way of the Ford Drive-In Theater, the former occupant on the same ground. It's going away. The theater occupied the 12-acre tract at the intersection of U.S. 340 and Millville Road from 1950 to 1982. A year later, tables, booths and tents took over the spaces that once held rows of cars facing the big outdoor screen and the Harpers Ferry Flea Market was born, a venture that thrived in the 26 years since. Now the flea market is about to make way for Alstadts Corner, a proposed 55-unit multifamily subdivision.
