HAGERSTOWN -- The City of Hagerstown is considering whether to return an $85,000 state grant that was awarded in 2006 to help attract a developer to renovate the historic Alms House on North Locust Street. Community Development Director Larry Bayer said city officials planned to give the grant to a developer to help renovate the house, but no one showed interest. As a further incentive, Bayer said, the city would have donated the property. Bayer said renovations to the house, which was built in the late 18th century and served as a hospital during the Civil War, were estimated to cost about $600,000.

HAGERSTOWN -- The Hagerstown Community Development Department will revise its budget to compensate for an estimated $1.05 million shortfall in program income. Community Development Director Larry Bayer said the original budget for fiscal year 2008-09 was expected to be about $2.98 million, but will be closer to $1.93 million. He said the shortfall primarily was caused by a drop in sales of city-owned homes that were part of the Single Family Homeownership program, an initiative in which the city buys homes, renovates them and sells them for a profit to help fund the Community Development Department.

HAGERSTOWN -- The Hagerstown City Council on Tuesday unofficially agreed to put a city-owned home on the market for $73,000. Community Development Director Larry Bayer told the council that it should consider offering incentives to make the property, which is at 140 S. Potomac St., more attractive to buyers. One of the incentives included forgiving the loan at a rate of 10 percent per year over a 10-year period. The offer would be good as long as the buyer remains in the home for a decade.
