The Frederick County, MD Board of Zoning Appeals process is over. Last night, the Board voted 3-0 to deny a reconsideration of the Board’s earlier 2-1 vote against giving the AEP/Allegheny’s huge PATH substation a special exception to county zoning. The power companies have already purchased the property, which remains zoned agricultural. Oops.
AEP/Allegheny will no doubt take this to court. Let’s hope Frederick County’s public servants continue to serve the citizens of their community.
