Route 7 Rezoning Petition

February 17, 2021

Recently, there have been two applications filed with the Cecil County Department of Planning and Zoning seeking to Rezone properties located adjacent to MD Route 7, between Wells Camp Road to the East, and Rt 7’s intersection with Rt 40 to the West.  The properties in question total approximately 130 acres and currently are either zoned Suburban Transitional (ST) or Business General (BG), and they are requesting to have their respective zoning designations changed and intensified to Heavy Industrial (M2).

The Town Commissioners of Charlestown have voted unanimously to oppose this rezoning primarily due to the anticipated negative impact Heavy Industrial zoning would have on our community, its close proximity to our residential areas, and the degradation of the bucolic character of our Town and surroundings environs.
