The Ocean Pines board of directors does not endorse developer Jack Burbage’s request to have his 30 acres of land off Route 589 rezoned from agriculture to commercial.
Burbage, who asked the board members for their support during their March 20 meeting, wants to build a medical complex on the site. He said he envisioned eight buildings on the property.
Burbage said the medical complex could become part of Ocean Pines, which would mean revenue for the homeowners’ association. He also said the development could take care of its own water and wastewater needs and that access to the complex would be through King Richard Road in Ocean Pines and through developer Marvin Steen’s property. Steen, he said, had given him easements.
King Richard Road residents have been opposed to their short, narrow road being used to access Burbage’s property.
