The Hagerstown City Council will introduce an ordinance to acquire 2.79 acres of land that would increase the area of Fairgrounds Park.
City Finance Director Alfred Martin said the land will be donated. The city must first pass an ordinance to accept the property, he said.
The city will make improvements to a stream that runs through the land once the property's title is transferred, City Engineer Rodney Tissue said Tuesday during a City Council work session.
Dan Ryan Builders is the current owner.
The stream's bed is eroding, Tissue said. The restoration would stabilize the stream bank and prevent further wear, he said.
Tissue showed the council pictures of a similar project in City Park where rocks were used to stabilize a stream bank there.
