Charles County’s Draft 2017 Land Preservation, Parks and Recreation Plan

Notice is hereby given that the Charles County Board of Commissioners will hold a Public Hearing on Charles County’s draft 2017 Land Preservation, Parks and Recreation Plan (LPPRP), on July 18, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. in the County Commissioner’s Meeting Room located in the County Government Building, 200 Baltimore Street, La Plata, Maryland.

The State of Maryland requires counties to update their Land Preservation, Parks and Recreation Plan (LPPRP) every five years, one year prior to the revision of the statewide Maryland Land Preservation, Parks and Recreation Plan. The LPPRPs qualify local governments for State Program Open Space (POS) grants and other programs related to three land resource elements: Recreation and Parks; Agricultural Land Preservation; and Natural Resource Conservation.

The Charles County Draft 2017 LPPRP has been developed in accordance with guidelines provided in 2016 by the Maryland Departments of Planning and Natural Resources. The updated Plan contains key information, goals, and recommendations to guide the County’s management and enhancement of its parks, recreation facilities and open space assets for the next five years.

The Draft Plan can be found on the County’s web site at www.charlescountymd.gov/rpt/recreation-parks-tourism. Citizens wishing to make verbal or written comments are encouraged to attend the hearing. For further information contact the Department of Recreation, Parks, and Tourism at 301-932-3470 or via email to ccpr@charlescountymd.gov. Those individuals or representatives wishing to speak must sign in. Speaker sign up will begin 30 minutes (½ hour) prior to the hearing and will end at the commencement of the hearing. Each speaker will be allotted three (3) minutes. Written comments may be submitted in lieu of oral testimony or to expand upon oral testimony to the Department representative listed in this notice.
