The Hagerstown-Washington County Economic Development Commission recently presented its “Infrastructure Assessment” report to the Washington County Commissioners. The report, which took 18 months to prepare, provides a snapshot of the infrastructure readiness of nine economic development regions in the county and three specific areas in the City of Hagerstown. As reported by the Hagerstown Herald Mail:
The infrastructure needs assessment is one of five goals being pursued by the EDC. Others include promoting workforce development, a focus on Hagerstown’s City Center, developing a countywide marketing plan and a continued review of the EDC’s role in the county economic development process.
Based on the assessment, the county’s infrastructure outlook is positive. From the infrastructure report:
The foundation of the County’s infrastructure is rated “good” and due to future improvements, looks promising well into the future. Over the next ten years, the County will spend $441,216,100 on infrastructure and related investment.
