Frederick Co. puts off review of utility substation proposal

November 15, 1996

Frederick County Planning Commission deferred until its December meeting a review of Allegheny Power Co.'s plan to build a substation with a 65-foot tower atop Parr's Ridge near Mount Airy.

The proposal was scheduled to go before the planning commission Wednesday, after the zoning appeals board limited its approval to the first part of the power company's plan, a 34.5-kilovolt station on a half-acre. Allegheny Power plans to expand to 230 kilovolts on a 2.5-acre site.

Utility spokeswoman Debbie Beck said the deferral will give Allegheny Power time to prepare a site plan showing the first part of the project. The commission asked for a site plan that shows the initial 34.5-kilovolt station.
