The city of Hagerstown has awarded a $67,686 contract to a consultant to help plan redevelopment of the Central Chemical site in Hagerstown's West End, Senior Planner Kathleen Maher said Thursday.
The Hagerstown City Council on Tuesday awarded the contract to E2 of Charlottesville, Va.
Funding for the contract comes from a $100,000 grant the city received from the Environmental Protection Agency. The rest of the money went to reimburse the city for costs associated with the project, she said.
The intent of the project is to let the EPA know what the community thinks should be done with the property, Maher said. The EPA will then use that information as a guide as it develops plans to clean up the site, she said.
