HAGERSTOWN — A proposed sports and events complex in downtown Hagerstown looks to be getting less support when a new city council takes office.
The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown reports that two newly elected councilmembers, Penny Nigh and Don Munson, are against the current proposal.
The $37 million project calls for a multiuse complex that would be located downtown and funded by money from a private donor and from the state.
Nigh and Munson both say they’d prefer to see the existing Municipal Stadium be rehabilitated instead of constructing a new stadium downtown.
Two other incumbent councilmembers support the project while another incoming member is undecided.
