Armory could become storage facility

September 25, 1997

The former Hagerstown National Guard Armory could become a recycling and storage facility for surplus state and federal property, officials said this week.

Making the state-owned building a satellite recycling and storage facility for the Maryland State Agency for Surplus Property in Jessup, Md., is one option, said Dave Humphrey, Maryland Department of General Services spokesman.

The agency stores property such as furniture, computers and hospital equipment, he said.

Another option would be to allow community groups to use the 328 N. Potomac St. building, but code violations must be addressed before that could happen, Humphrey said.

The 21st Century Teens and Has-Beens Boxing groups had to vacate the armory by Sept. 10 because of several building code violations.

Future tenants would need a lease, which neither of those groups had, Humphrey said.

A lease would have to be approved by the Maryland Board of Public Works, he said.
