Washington County Public Works Director Gary Rohrer asked the County Commissioners Tuesday to add two positions to the Engineering Department but they took no action on the request. The two positions are needed if the county is to meet the demands of current and future projects, Rohrer said. "Now I have this information and I'd like to think about it," Commissioner John L. Schnebly said. Rohrer requested funding for a third project manager and a structural engineer. His request was unrelated to the suspension of Project Manager Steven Kenneth Spalding, County Administrator Rodney Shoop said.

Information about Hagerstown's proposed downtown stadium project - dubbed “MUSEC,” short for multiuse sports and entertainment center - has been removed from the city website, not even 24 hours after a new plan to possibly build a facility in the city's East End was pitched. A link on the city's homepage titled “Multiuse Center” was taken down Wednesday afternoon on the heels of Hagerstown Suns majority owner Bruce Quinn's concept for the alternative $25 million stadium project.

Using projections from a consultant's report as “more of a road map than a prescription,” Hagerstown Economic Development Manager Jill Estavillo said Wednesday that a proposed downtown multiuse sports and events center could bring 224,000 new visitors to City Center each year. “And we'll have additional visitors from nonbaseball events,” Estavillo told about 100 people in the Cumberland Room of the Ramada Plaza Hotel in Hagerstown. Add an estimated 500,000 people a year who are expected to visit the Washington County Regional Free Library, which is slated to open next year on South Potomac Street, and it will cause a “dramatic change to foot traffic” in the downtown area, she said.

The possibility of constructing a new multiuse sports and events center in downtown Hagerstown is being viewed by local elected officials as a long-overdue catalyst for redevelopment of the city's struggling downtown. But exactly how the stadium, which would be the new home of the Hagerstown Suns, would help facilitate that goal - in the form of new development and jobs - remains to be seen. According to the Ripken Design feasibility study released Friday, conservative projections indicate that the construction of the $30 million multiuse center would support about 132 baseball-related jobs and $4.5 million in earnings over the first decade.

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.
