    A proposed sports and events complex in downtown Hagerstown looks like it could lose support when a new city council takes office.

    Two newly elected councilmembers, Penny Nigh and Don Munson, are against the current proposal, reports the Herald-Mail of Hagerstown.

    The $37 million project calls for a multiuse complex that would be located downtown and funded by money from a private donor and from the state.

    Nigh and Munson both say they'd prefer to see the existing Municipal Stadium be rehabilitated instead of constructing a new stadium downtown.

    Two other incumbent councilmembers support the project, while another incoming member is undecided.
