Severna Park garden center wins permission to expand

An administrative hearing officer has given the owners of a Severna Park garden center permission to expand.

xTC Hearing officer Robert C. Wilcox ruled that Bush's Garden Center is a legal nonconforming use and approved plans by owners Larry and Mary Mossman to enclose a car port and build a garage. That would add 1,081 square feet -- a 30 percent increase, the legal maximum allowed -- to the facility.

The 2.48 acres that include the garden center are on Ritchie Highway, south of Earleigh Heights Road. The garden center first was deemed a legal nonconforming use in 1982,because it opened before the restrictive residential zoning was adopted.
