After the Historic District Commission approved Washington College’s request to tear down the Armory, now rescinded, I filed a request under the Maryland Freedom of Information Act with the Town. I have now received documents from the Town and reviewed them.

I was particularly interested in the restrictive covenant on the Armory’s use for “college and/or university uses.” To remind the reader, this restrictive covenant was disclosed not by the Town or by Washington College but by concerned citizens doing their homework.
