The request by the Berkeley County Council to have the Martinsburg City Council approve a zoning change at 750 Baltimore Street, the former sock factory that the Berkeley County had planned to convert into a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center, was defeated.
After an emotional two and a half hour “Petitions from Citizens” segment, the Martinsburg City Council voted not to rezone the area from General Industrial to Community Business.
The Berkeley County Council will not be able to petition for a rezoning for another year.
