Comment Deadline June 15

Stevensville, Md. (May 7, 2012) - The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is seeking public input on the future of Love Point State Park in Stevensville. The 75-acre parcel, acquired by DNR in 2007, is situated on the mouth of the Chester River at the north end of Kent Island.

“The land is owned by the State and currently does not serve a purpose. Our goal is to develop a plan that would make the best use of this area, creating a quality recreational space for residents and visitors to enjoy,” said DNR Planning Chief Arnold Norden.

DNR will host a Public Planning Workshop where participants can get information and provide their input on the planning process. Anyone interested in the future of the park is invited to attend.

The meeting will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. on Monday, May 14 at the Kent Island Branch of the Queen Ann’s County Public Library at 200 Library Circle in Stevensville. The public may also provide input in writing to Arnold Norden at the Maryland Park Service, 580 Taylor Avenue, Annapolis, MD 21401 or via email at bnorden@dnr.state.md.us. Questions should be directed 410-260-8159. Comments or suggestions are due by June 15, 2012.
