Martinsburg: Discussion on new zoning ordinance put off again

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — The public hearing planned for Wednesday on the City of Martinsburg’s new zoning ordinance has been postponed again.

City officials said due to recent positive COVID-19 tests involving Martinsburg City Hall staff, Martinsburg City Hall will be closed for the remainder of this week as a proactive measure to prohibit further spread for the protection of our employees, their families and the public.

City hall is scheduled to reopen next Monday after a deep cleaning is completed.

The Planning Commission meeting scheduled for Wednesday has been postponed and will be rescheduled at a future date. Part of that meeting was set to take public comment on the city’s draft for its new zoning ordinance. The current ordinance was written back in 1970.

The public hearing was supposed to take place last month but was postponed due to COVID concerns.
