Your voice is needed!

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.

Comments can be submitted to and Caleb Wayne Hudson until Nov 13. For more information, contact Andy Beall <> or Than Hitt <>.
