Hagerstown’s new multi-use sports facility receives state funding

Maryland

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (WDVM) — Hagerstown’s new multi-use sports facility is receiving state funding. The project was on the board of public works agenda and during their last meeting, they approved the funding for approximately $59 1/2 million dollars. Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot says the move makes sense economically to invest in Hagerstown.

“This is a citizen-driven project. it’s not supported by everybody because some people just push back against state funding of something like a minor league baseball stadium. I happen to think it’s a terrific investment,” said Franchot.

Peter Franchot also says this is money we know is available and will not require tax increase down the road.
The multi-use sports facility is expected to be completed in 2024.
