Sta­dium author­ity re­jects Fred­er­ick cen­ter

Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND WORLD -

The Mary­land Sta­dium Author­ity has voted against an agree­ment with the city and county for a planned ho­tel and con­fer­ence cen­ter in down­town Fred­er­ick. The author­ity voted Mon­day not to sign a mem­o­ran­dum of un­der­stand­ing that laid out fi­nanc­ing plans and a sched­ule for the $84 mil­lion project. Sup­port­ers sought bond fund­ing through the author­ity dur­ing the 2016 leg­isla­tive ses­sion. Last month, a ma­jor­ity of the city Board of Al­der­men and County Coun­cil passed the agree­ment, but it still re­quired ap­proval from the sta­dium author­ity and Mary­land Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment Corp. MSA Chair­man Thomas Kelso said in a state­ment Tues­day that there’s no owner for the project, and no fi­nanc­ing, and that the cur­rent agree­ment had no clear role for the author­ity.
