GLEN ARM -- The Maryland Court of Special Appeals has upheld a county decision to rezone 5.2 acres at the northeast corner of Glen Arm Road and Long Green Pike, where an engineering company wants to move two subsidiaries.

The Prosser Co., which designs and builds chemical processing plants, asked for the rezoning from residential and commercial to industrial. The change would allow construction of plants for Amereihn Co., a small steel fabrication company in Fullerton, and El-Tex Industries Inc., a Baltimore manufacturer of electric control panels.

The court rejected community group arguments to keep the zoning approved in the last comprehensive rezoning cycle.
