May 02, 2003|by SCOTT BUTKI

HAGERSTOWN, MD. - University of Virginia architecture graduate students who have been developing suggestions to improve Hagerstown are scheduled to meet with the public from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Sunday.

The event at the Frostburg University Center in downtown Hagerstown is sponsored by the Washington County Historical Society.

The students on April 17 publicly presented proposals on ways to reuse Central Chemical's contaminated 19-acre property in Hagerstown's West End, including as a farm or sports park.

The students also had suggestions on ways to improve other parts of the city.

University Professor Daniel Bluestone said he hopes some elected officials will attend Sunday's function, at which some of the students' proposals and findings will be presented and discussed.

The university has been examining Hagerstown as part of a study funded by an Environmental Protection Agency grant.
