ANNAPOLIS (Jan. 29, 2009) The Maryland Board of Public Works this week approved local-side Program Open Space funding for a recreational improvement project in St. Marys County. $276,408 will fund the fifth phase of the Three Notch Trail in St. Marys County. Once complete, this span of three miles from Laurel to Mechanicsville will support recreational activities such as running, horseback riding, biking and rollerblading.
The three-member Board of Public Works, chaired by Governor OMalley, is comprised of Treasurer Nancy Kopp and Comptroller Peter Franchot. The BPW is authorized by the General Assembly to approve major construction and consultant contracts, equipment purchases, property transactions and other procurement actions.
