Hagerstown eyes land for parking lot growth

August 04, 1998

The City of Hagerstown is on its way to buying more property to expand the North Potomac Street parking lot, but the mayor thinks the city should focus on another area.

Mayor Robert E. Bruchey II said on July 28 that he would prefer City Council members to focus their effort to increase parking spaces downtown in the southwest quadrant of downtown rather than the northeast.

Bruchey can only vote to break a tie, which wasn't needed last Tuesday.

The council voted 4-0 twice to introduce separate legislation to buy two properties for parking in the northeast area of downtown. Councilman Alfred W. Boyer was absent.

The city would pay Todd A. Farmer and Margaret E. Bristow $12,204 for land behind 41 E. Franklin St. and would pay Brenda J. Thomas Bush and Laird A. Bush $12,204 for land behind 39 E. Franklin St., according to city documents.
