Seasons Greetings from the Hagerstown Economic Development Department

Seasons Greetings from the Hagerstown Economic Development Department

Downtown Hagerstown has decked the streets in anticipation of the upcoming holiday season, and we are sending you this friendly reminder of the opportunities that downtown Hagerstown has to offer.
Downtown is in the midst of a renaissance bringing new life and excitement to the core of our community. The new University System of Hagerstown Education Center created a spark, which has led to significant investment in downtown properties. Since the Education Center opened in January 2005, many new restaurants and retail shops have opened in the downtown. By the end of the year, the completed renovation of 28 S. Potomac Street will be finished with a new restaurant and pub and Class A office space. Bowman Development plans to have two renovated buildings and one new building south of 28 S. Potomac Street ready for occupancy in 2007. The Washington County School System is pursuing plans to open a performing and visual arts school at 7-11 S. Potomac Street by the fall of 2008. The Washington County Free Library is pursing plans for a significant expansion plan for the central library.
Please help us promote the successes we are experiencing in downtown Hagerstown in our efforts to rejuvenate the area for business, shopping, dining, living and culture. Our shops and restaurants will appreciate your support.
As you plan employee recognition and holiday gift giving programs, please consider making gifts of "downtown dollars" as a way to bring your employees downtown to discover what's new in the heart of Washington County in downtown Hagerstown. "Downtown dollars" can be used for face value at any downtown restaurant, retail shop, Discovery Station or the Maryland Theatre.
If you are interested in this idea, please contact my office to learn how to purchase "downtown dollars".
We look forward to seeing you and your employees downtown in the near future. You'll be surprised at what you'll find.

Happy Holidays,
Deborah A. Everhart
