Making a House an Apartment

By Ken Hawkins

The Montgomery County Board of Appeals has notified the NFCCA and the community regarding a special exception to the zoning ordinance to allow an accessory apartment in a house at 419 Belton Road.  The location is zoned residential R60, which does not permit such uses except by permit.  Apparently an apartment already exists in this house and the request is to permit it retroactively.

The hearing on this matter is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on Friday, 7 March 2003 at the Stella B. Werner Council Office Building, Second Floor, 100 Maryland Avenue, Rockville MD.  The case number is S-2558.  Residents can mail letters about this matter or testify in person.  More information is available from the Planning Board at 301.495.4610.   ■
