Public comment sought

Leonardtown, MD - The St. Mary’s County Recreation and Parks Board invites the public to a meeting on Thursday, September 1, 2016 to solicit input regarding the update to the St. Mary’s County Land Preservation, Parks and Recreation Plan (LPPRP). The meeting begins at 5:30 p.m., in the commissioners meeting room inside the Chesapeake Building in Leonardtown.

The LPPRP identifies recreational, agricultural and natural resource and open space preservation needs in St. Mary’s County.  Once adopted, the LPPRP will guide county policies and actions to address those needs in the future.

The LPPRP is updated every five years and offers an opportunity to reassess priorities in light of population growth and changing economic, social and market conditions.  The St. Mary’s County plan, along with plans from other counties, will be used by the State to guide planning, funding and programs to meet land preservation, parks and recreation needs state-wide.   

For more information on the public meeting, or the LPPRP, please contact the Department of Recreation and Parks at 301-475-4200 ext. *1811, or via email to A copy of the 2012 plan is available for download at
