Salisbury City Council Puts Church Street Rezoning On Hold

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Salisbury City Council says they are putting rezoning plans on hold for the Linens of the Week property in the Salisbury Church Street neighborhood.

Council originally wanted to rezone the area from a general-use zoning to a residential zoning code so they could subdivide the property into smaller single-family homes. However, this would make many homes on the block "legal non-conforming uses," which means the homes would technically not conform to code, but they are legal because they are grandfathered in. This upset many residents because they did not feel that they were properly notified, and their properties would be put into a category that was not there when they originally bought their homes.

City council also tried to donate the facilities to a couple of organizations within the area, but so far the organizations have declined the offer. Councilwoman Laura Mitchell says it is not worth it to rezone until they have permanent plans on what they are doing with the area. City council also plans to rework their "notification system" so residents will be more aware of what is going on with their neighborhood.
