Panel to weigh proposed development

January 11, 1995

Plans for a 290-unit development in southwest Taneytown will once again be considered by the city's Planning and Zoning Commission after City Council members reviewed the development Monday night.

By not taking any action, the council left a decision on whether to approve preliminary concept plans, submitted by Mountain Brook Development Corp., up to the Planning and Zoning Commission, said City Manager John L. Kendall.

The commission, which is to consider the proposed development's impact on the city's sewage treatment plant capacity, has scheduled a Jan. 30 meeting, Mr. Kendall said yesterday.

In other action, the City Council approved the preliminary phase of the wastewater treatment plant expansion project, which could double the plant's 700,000-gallon-a-day capacity within several years.

The project is needed because of several new developments that are under construction or planned for the next several years.
