The Community’s City Center Plan is a 10-year roadmap for eight catalyst projects that will spur development in Hagerstown’s City Center. The plan includes detailed annual steps for making these concepts a reality. It creates at least 875 new permanent jobs, bringing $125 million in new investment downtown.
This is a public-private partnership, where private developers invest 75% of the cost while funding from all levels of government will cover the rest. The City’s consultants, Urban Partners, conclude that all of these projects are feasible based on their economic analysis.
This roadmap is the result of broad community input, with the consultants spending over 130 hours collecting feedback from the community. We appreciate your participation in this project to help move our downtown forward!
