County selling land to Phoenix Color

July 06, 1999

The Washington County Commissioners are selling a 26.7-acre property at the Hagerstown Regional Airport to Phoenix Color for $152,500.

The company will use the property as an entrance for its proposed $100 million book technology park, County Attorney Richard W. Douglas said.

As part of the arrangement, Phoenix Color is giving the county 16 acres which it will use for a storm water management pond, Douglas said.

The commissioners approved the land sale at a June 29 meeting, but the land will not actually change hands before July 27.

All of the land involved is northwest of the main airport runway, he said.

The county no longer needs the property, Douglas said. The county acquired the land in 1988 from Fairchild Industries Inc. so it could be used for economic development, he said.
