Money to develop a marketing plan for Hagerstown Regional Airport will be the county’s top priority for grant funds from the Appalachian Regional Commission, the Washington County Board of Commissioners decided Tuesday.

The project is one of six the commissioners agreed to submit for consideration for an anticipated $1.3 million to be distributed between three Western Maryland counties for fiscal 2013.

The county is seeking $75,000 in ARC funds for the marketing plan, or half of the $150,000 estimated cost.

Sierra Nevada Corporation’s Wind Tunnel Tests Completed On Dream Chaser Orbital Crew Vehicle

Wind tunnel testing of a scale model of the Dream Chaser orbital crew vehicle has been completed in the Oran W. Nicks Low Speed Wind Tunnel at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. Aerodynamic data generated from this testing, coupled with data from computer simulations, will define the characteristics of the Dream Chaser lifting body vehicle during the approach and landing phase of flight.

Two new incentive programs help to make way for new office building

February 25, 2012, Herald-Mail | By JULIE E. GREENE

The center of what once was the Martin’s Food Market at Fountainhead Plaza sat empty for more than three years before it was demolished this winter to make way for a new free-standing office building that could open by the end of this year.

The space could have continued in its boarded-up status for another year if it weren’t for two new incentive programs that Washington County approved in recent months, said Asad Ghattas, who owns Fountainhead Plaza north of Hagerstown.
