Taneytown man wins building permit appeal

Craig D. Austin has won an appeal from the county Board of Zoning Appeals for a building permit for a 40-foot-by-60-foot pole barn in Taneytown.

He was originally turned down for the permit because the 2.63-acre property, which abuts Taneytown city limits, was zoned agriculture, but designated as an industrial zone. The maximum size for a detached building in an agricultural area is 1,500 square feet on a lot that is less than 5 acres.

However, the zoning appeals board found the property unique because it is bounded by future industrial and/or agricultural uses, rather than residences, and approved the request.
