Hogan Pledges $7M for Western Maryland City’s Downtown

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — Gov. Larry Hogan is pledging more than $7 million over five years to help the western Maryland city of Hagerstown with a downtown revitalization plan anchored by educational and arts institutions.

The Republican governor made the announcement Thursday at the Maryland Theatre, a restored, century-old venue that is part of the project.

The $30 million plan includes adding a glass-and brick entrance to the theater, which lost its grand facade to a fire in 1974.

The plan also includes expanding both a University System of Maryland education center and an arts-oriented public high school.

An arts high school!!!!! No math, no reading, no writing, no history, no spelling, no basic education. BUT dancing, use of crayons art, music aart, the kids will be great and fail for work at a ham and cheese sandwich shop. Great use of our TAX money. !!!!!
