CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) — Managers of a site featuring shops, restaurants and historical attractions in Cumberland are looking to expand the project’s reach.

The Cumberland Times-News reports that the public authority that runs the Canal Place Heritage Area is hiring a consultant to update the project’s management plan.

Cumberland city planner Kathy McKenney said Tuesday that the plan will include projects affecting downtown Cumberland, the nearby city of Frostburg and other communities in Allegany County.

Canal Place is at the western end of the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park.
