The Jefferson County Commission will soon decide whether to rezone an area near Morgan's Grove Park (corner or Rt. 480 and Rt. 45-alt) to General Commercial. This could result in a strip mall or worse in this important gateway to Shepherdstown.
The Shepherdstown Planning Commission opposes the proposed rezoning because: (1) It lacks protections for nearby residents and landowners, particularly if the parcel is sold after rezoning; (2) A public need for the rezoning has not been demonstrated; and (3) General Commercial development would be incompatible with nearby areas including Morgan's Grove Park.
