McClure wants Mills Park cleaned up

December 19, 1997

Hagerstown City Councilman J. Wallace McClure wants Mills Park cleaned up.

There has been teenage sex, teenage drinking, graffiti and possibly drug dealing going on at the park between Belview Avenue, Northern Avenue and the Morris Frock American Legion post, McClure said Tuesday night.

The park is an embarrassment to the city and to the family of the late Mayor Herman L. Mills, McClure said. Mills' estate donated the land for the park.

McClure said when he reported the park's condition to Public Works Department Manager Doug Stull, the park was cleaned up immediately. But further action is needed, he said.

McClure suggested closing the park or installing a gate so the public couldn't access it after dusk. If the park is kept open, it needs lighting, he said.
