Westminster planners review Cranberry access

A shopping center's request for direct access from Route 140, a final subdivision plan, a site plan for condominiums in another subdivision, and review of a proposed landscaping manual are on the Westminster planning commission's agenda for tomorrow night.

The commission will meet at 7:30 p.m. in City Hall.

Commission members are scheduled to act on a request from the owners of Cranberry Square Shopping Center for direct access from westbound Route 140. Westbound traffic currently enters the shopping center after making a turn onto Center Street.

The agenda includes a final plan for Cliveden Reach, a subdivision of about 70 single-family houses off Meadow Branch Road.

The commission is also to consider a site plan for 30 to 40 condominiums in Furnace Hills Section 2, a 280-unit subdivision of single-family houses, town houses and duplexes off Uniontown Road.

Planning commission members will get a preview of a landscaping manual that will set Westminster's first specific requirements for landscaping new developments.

A 10-member committee that included a developer, landscapers, state and county staff members, a representative of the Extension Service for Carroll County and Councilwoman Rebecca A. Orenstein has spent about 18 months developing the manual.

Public hearings will be scheduled and the manual will require approval from the City Council before it becomes effective, Planning and Public Works Director Thomas B. Beyard reported.
