CENTREVILLE — Ch­ester­wye Cen­ter Inc. re­ceived mi­nor site plan ap­proval from the Queen Anne’s County Plan­ning Com­mis­sion Nov. 10 for of a new fa­cil­ity in Stevensville.

Ch­ester­wye Cen­ter, lo­cated in Gra­sonville, plans to con­struct a new 3,221 square foot in­sti­tu­tional fa­cil­ity at 325 State Street in Stevensville. This new fa­cil­ity will be in ad­di­tion to the cur­rent fa­cil­i­ties Ch­ester­wye Cen­ter main­tains and will seek to house four adults with de­vel­op­men­tal and phys­i­cal dis­abil­i­ties. The new fa­cil­ity will have two staff mem­bers on site at all times.

Ac­cord­ing to Holly Tomp­kins, de­vel­op­ment re­view prin­ci­pal plan­ner for Queen Anne’s County, the prop­erty is owned by the Queen Anne’s County Hous­ing Author­ity and the cur­rent struc­ture at 325 State Street is not presently oc­cu­pied. The ex­ist­ing struc­ture will be de­mol­ished and re­placed. The ex­ist­ing sep­tic field will be aban­doned and the new struc­ture tied in to pub­lic sewer and water, she said.

The pro­posed struc­ture keeps in ap­pear­ance with res­i­den­tial struc­ture in the area, but also meets in­sti­tu­tional fa­cil­ity re­quire­ments, said Tomp­kins, and there­fore meets per­mit­ted use. The site plan was also re­viewed and found to be in con­form­ity with ex­ist­ing Com­pre­hen­sive and Com­mu­nity Plans for the Stevensville area.

Plan­ners gave ap­proval with the con­di­tions that the build­ing be con­structed in a con­sis­tent man­ner with the draw­ings as re­viewed by the com­mis­sion and that any ed­its re­quired by the Depart­ment of Pub­lic Works and/ or Depart­ment of Plan­ning and Zon­ing be ap­proved and ap­proved.
