Annapolis council to hold zoning hearing tonight

The Annapolis City Council will hold a public hearing tonight on plans to upgrade a nursing home in Eastport and convert a dilapidated home across from the Circuit Courthouse into offices.

The council will also consider an application by Cellular One Corp. to install antennas atop an 185-foot city water tower on Janwall Street.

The owners of Annapolis Convalescent Center on Bay Ridge Avenue want to enlarge the lobby, enclose a screened porch and build a hallway between the building's two wings, said Eileen P. Fogarty, the city's director of planning and zoning.

John Prann and Sue Porter are proposing converting a ramshackle house on South Street, across from the county Circuit Court, into offices.

A long-range study on downtown Annapolis has recommended keeping the houses on that street residential, Ms. Fogarty said. The recommendation will be considered against the need to upgrade the property.

The public is invited to the hearings, at 7:30 p.m. at Annapolis City Hall, 160 Duke of Gloucester St.
