LEONARDTOWN, Md. (May 18, 2008)—The lighting project for the athletic fields at Chancellors Run Regional Park is now complete, according to the Board of County Commissioners for St. Marys County.
The project was included in the Countys FY08 Capital Improvement Budget to light two existing soccer/lacrosse fields at the park to address the needs of expanding youth sports programs in the south County area.
The new field lights will allow extra playing time for soccer and lacrosse leagues during peak field usage times.
The County also recently installed Control Link® remote field lighting controls at all lighted County athletic fields. County officials say this technology will allow park staff to turn the field lights on and off from a central location and more efficiently control the duration of time the lights are used. Lighting schedules can be changed with just a few minutes notice, which officials say will help to save energy.
