Chapel Point is one of the most beautiful parks in Charles County, and is the only public access point on the Port Tobacco River. PTRC will be attending this meeting to advocate for improvements to the facilities there to improve public access and enjoyment for everyone who loves to swim, fish, kayak, boat, or otherwise enjoy the park. This is your chance to let the State and the County know what improvements you would like to see.
The Maryland Park Service and the Charles County Department of Recreation, Parks, and Tourism will hold a public meeting to discuss a strategic management partnership plan for Chapel Point State Park on Thursday, Aug. 4 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the County Commissioners’ Meeting Room at the Charles County Government Building (200 Baltimore Street, La Plata). Citizens wishing to make oral or written comments are encouraged to attend the meeting. Chapel Point State Park is located off of Chapel Point Road in Port Tobacco.
A partnership with the Maryland Park Service and the Charles County Department of Recreation, Parks, and Tourism is being proposed to enhance services for increased visitation and interest in the park’s existing and potential amenities. State and county staff will provide background information about the park along with general goals for the partnership at the public meeting.
The public is asked to identify specific management objectives, operational measures, and infrastructure improvements that would enhance the park. Following the open house, a strategic management partnership plan will be developed to facilitate the proposed partnership using public input.
