August 11, 2004|by GREGORY T. SIMMONS

The Hagerstown City Council said it would authorize a fund-raising letter in support of the community organization that is refurbishing an aging building.

City Economic Development Director Deborah Everhart said Aspiring to Serve, which is renovating the Cannon Shoe Factory on West Franklin Street, is seeking a $350,000 grant from the Appalachian Regional Commission, a federally established regional economic development organization.

Everhart said the building is in the process of being renovated, will house community organizations and may contain market-rate housing. She said the project will have cost about $3 million by the time it is complete.
