Public Meeting Scheduled for Master Plan of New Dunkirk Park
The Calvert County Division of Parks and Recreation and Division of Natural Resources are hosting a public meeting Thursday, Oct. 2, 7 p.m., at the Northeast Community Center in Chesapeake Beach to present the final draft of the master plan for a new park to be located on Ward Road in Dunkirk.
The Master Plan Steering Committee will present the draft park master plan which has been developed based on the identified needs of the county and the input provided during a June 2014 public meeting. The Oct. 2 meeting will be the final opportunity for citizens to view the plan and provide input toward its refinement.
Parks and Recreation and Natural Resources are developing a master plan for the 209-acre property, which was purchased by the county in Fiscal Year 2013. The purchase was funded by the Calvert County Youth Recreational Opportunities Fund, a state grant administered by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources.
