MILLING­TON — By a 4-0 vote, the plan­ning com­mis­sion at its Feb. 23 meet­ing granted con­di­tional use for a church that wants to hold ser vices at 205 Sas­safras St.

Bill and Kim Combs, who live on the Queen Anne’s County side of Milling­ton, made the re­quest on be­half of the House of Prayer Ho­li­ness. Their son and daugh­ter-in­law re­cently pur­chased a home at 209 Sas­safras St. and have im­proved the prop­erty, Town Ad­min­is­tra­tor Jo Man­ning told the Milling­ton Plan­ning Com­mis­sion.

The prop­erty at 205 Sas­safras St. is zoned Town Cen­ter Com­mer­cial. For­mer uses in­cluded a con­sign­ment store and flower shop.

The Comb­ses will lease from owner Robert Everett.

Man­ning told the plan­ners that BB&T bank had given the church per­mis­sion to use its park­ing lot for ser­vices — at 7:30 p.m. Tues­days and at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. Sun­days. The build­ing had been va­cant. Com­mis­sion mem­bers agreed it was a bonus to have the build­ing oc­cu­pied and im­proved.

Mau­rice “Moe” Mor­ton led the meet­ing in the ab­sence of Chair­man Joyce Mo­rales. There was a light agenda, and the 7 p.m. meet­ing was ad­journed at 7:40 p.m.
