County Seeking Public Input On Land Preservation And Recreation Plan

Public Forum Set for Tuesday, May 21st

Salisbury, MD – Wicomico County will host a public forum, encouraging the public to provide input on its latest Land Preservation and Recreation Plan. The meeting will take place on Wednesday, June 19, 2013 beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Flanders Room of the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center.

Required by the State of Maryland in order for Wicomico County to be eligible for Program Open Space grant funding, the LPRP must be updated every five years and approved by the County Executive and County Council. This comprehensive document serves as a planning tool to protect natural resource areas, and provide public parks and recreation facilities to meet our citizens’ demands.

Highlights of the plan and a summary of preliminary recommendations will be presented by the Plan’s author – Urban Research & Development, Inc. Following this, the floor will be open for comments and suggestions from the public, with the focus on Natural Areas Protection first and then Active Recreation immediately after.

Select sections of the plan, maps, and a summary of recommendations will be available at beginning June 15, 2013.
