...*TC The Mount Airy Town Council last night appointed three residents to vacancies on two town commissions.

James C. Stargel was appointed to the Recycling Committee. The two vacancies on the Parks and Recreation Committee were filled by Tucker Lazarus and 13-year-old Nathaniel Gaskin, who will serve as the commission's teen-age member.

The council was scheduled last night to vote on whether to allow developer Robert Peacock to begin construction on a new road through his 13-acre property near Interstate 70 and Route 27, but the vote had not been taken by press time.

Mr. Peacock has proposed building a new road south of and parallel to East Ridgeville Boulevard. The new road would extend across Route 27 and would be the main point of access to Mr. Peacock's property, which is zoned for commercial development.

Homeowners on East Ridgeville Boulevard have protested the road, saying it would lower their property values.

The town's Planning and Zoning Commission recommended at its meeting last week that Mr. Peacock be allowed to start building the portion of the road that would be on his property.

The commission also agreed to ask the Town Council last night to appoint a committee to study issues related to the construction of the new road.

Last year, the Town Council voted to support the new road, but the final road design is still under review.

In other business, the council scheduled a workshop on Mount Airy's Master Plan for 8 p.m. Nov. 15.
