Sharpsburg could loosen restrictions on local businesses

Wednesday, July 10, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

Sharpsburg Council will vote on changes to the borough's regulations on what type of businesses can operate in the business district at its next meeting at 6:30 p.m. July 18 at the borough building on Main Street.

The changes came about after officials learned two businesses — Simple Sugars and Espresso Catering — did not meet the requirement that products be sold directly at the site.

Council members had stated that they wanted to loosen those restrictions to reflect changes in how people shop and encourage more business growth in the borough.

Zoning Hearing Board

Sharpsburg officials named two residents to the zoning hearing board.

John Zuza was appointed to his first one-year term, and Christopher Cavlovich was named to his second five-year term.


Council approved a $64,240 payment to D&M Painting Corp. for painting of the borough water tower.

The tower was painted blue, the same color used by the former Sharpsburg High School. It also will have the borough's name painted on both sides.
