Appeals board approves zoning change for bank

The Carroll County Board of Zoning Appeals approved a conditional use yesterday that will allow Carroll County Bank and Trust Co. to relocate its Eldersburg branch to a 2.75 acre site in an industrial area.

The Westminster-based bank is negotiating to buy a tract at routes 26 and 32 to consolidate offices at 1438 Liberty Road and 6210 Georgetown Blvd. Bank officials have said the company has outgrown its existing facilities.

Last week, the Carroll County Planning and Zoning Commission agreed to subdivide a 2.75-acre lot from a 15-acre parcel at the PTC intersection's northeast corner for the bank's use.

The bank doesn't have detailed plans for the facility available yet. The bank must go through the county's development review process before building.
