The Washington County Commissioners on Tuesday approved a contract award for aviation engineering services for Hagerstown Regional Airport to Airport Design Consultants Inc. of Columbia, Md., contingent upon FAA approval.

The services to be performed include aviation planning services, architectural/engineering services, airport development projects and incidental services. Upcoming projects likely to fall under the contract include a study for a new air traffic control tower, an airport master plan and layout plan update, a terminal parking lot expansion and other projects, airport officials said.

The contract is for two years, with an option to renew for up to three consecutive one-year periods.

In accordance with FAA/MAA regulations, selection of an aviation engineering consultant is not to be based on price proposals but rather only on consultants' qualifications and experience.

The commissioners also approved a $104,040 contract for demolition and other miscellaneous airfield work to Yarnell P. Wastler & Sons Inc. of Frederick, Md., contingent upon FAA bid approval.

Buildings to be demolished include the Airview Motel on Pennsylvania Avenue and surrounding dwellings purchased by the airport several years ago, airport fire chief Phil Ridenour said. The buildings are being demolished to make way for future development, he said.

The historic Grove Farmstead on Pennsylvania Avenue is not among the buildings to be demolished, he said.
