City Council to consider land use at hearing tonight

May 23, 1994

Land use in Ward One will be the topic of tonight's hearing before the Annapolis City Council.

Six pieces of legislation regulating bed and breakfast homes, restaurants, professional offices and housing will be discussed. The hearing begins at 7:30 p.m. at City Hall.

The legislation would create three conservation districts -- one for residences, one for businesses and one for professional offices. The residential zone would target nine neighborhoods considered to be at risk because of heavy traffic, maintenance problems and nonconforming uses of land.

The regulations are designed to preserve the residential neighborhoods, stimulate investment and control uses in commercial areas, said Eileen P. Fogarty, director of planning and zoning. The package stems from the Ward One Sector Study which the City Council adopted last July.
