Hagerstown and Washington County officials have agreed on a leadership structure for a potential project to build a multiuse stadium at the intersection of Baltimore Street and Summit Avenue in Hagerstown.
Should the project move forward, the city will take the lead, but county, state and private-sector support will be critical, city and county officials agreed during a joint session Tuesday.
The session marked the first time the city and county had discussed a stadium together in open session since the latest push for a new stadium began.
Their discussion centered around a two-page memorandum from City Administrator Bruce Zimmerman describing the goals of the project and a proposed leadership structure.
His memo also singled out the intersection of Baltimore Street and Summit Avenue as the site for the project.
“We would like to emphasize that at this point, we don’t know whether the project is feasible,” Zimmerman said.
The two boards will make that decision after reviewing an economic impact study currently being conducted by Ripken Design, Hagerstown Mayor Robert E. Bruchey II said.
