Hagerstown buys land for parking

July 16, 1998

Hagerstown City Council members voted 3-0 on Tuesday to buy land from two Hagerstown City Police officers to make more parking available downtown.

David P. Peacher and Kevin S. Simmers will be paid $29,000 for the land to the rear of 55-63 E. Franklin St., according to the purchase contract and Tim Young, a city engineer.

The land will be used to make nine to 10 parking spaces and to widen a driveway to the North Potomac Street parking lot from Locust Street, Young said.

Councilman J. Wallace McClure said he abstained from voting because he is a tenant on the front part of the property. The councilman's businesses, McClure's Piano Shop and 'Round Town Movers, are at 63 E. Franklin St.
