A public hearing is scheduled in Thurmont next week to discuss a proposal to expand the town’s boundaries to include a 16.7-acre property encircled by Apples Church and Graceham roads. The parcel is zoned for agricultural use by the county. If the town votes to annex the land — and the county approves the change — it would become zoned for high-density residential use.
