Laurel officials get state funds for Armory community center

City officials have received a total of $300,000 from the state this year to support renovation, reconstruction and purchasing of equipment for the Laurel Armory Anderson Murphy Community Center, according to District 21 Democratic state Sen. Jim Rosapepe.

A $200,000 matching funds grant was approved by the state Board of Public Works on April 17, and a District 21 bond bill in the 2013 legislative session awarded an additional $100,000 to the city for upkeep of the Armory.

The Armory is used for city Parks and Recreation programs, and is located at Fifth and Montgomery streets.
