Millington church granted conditional use by vote
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.
