Suggestions sought on street name
HAGERSTOWN -- The City of Hagerstown is asking the public to help choose a new name for a road near the downtown Arts & Entertainment District parking deck.
The road, now called Cramer Alley, runs parallel to Potomac Street. A section near the parking deck, south of East Washington Street, is scheduled to be widened to a two-way street, according to a city map and memo.
On Tuesday, City Engineer Rodney Tissue told the council the origin of the name hasn't been found. Councilman William M. Breichner joked that former Councilman Fred Kramer liked to take credit, despite the different spelling.
Councilman Lewis C. Metzner, who suggested the name change, said he had a suggestion, but didn't want to mention it outside of an executive session.
