Blandair Nearing Reality?

HoCo exec Ulman recently released his capital budget proposal for building stuff around the county. The budget includes money to begin creating playgrounds and athletic fields at the old Smith Farm, otherwise known as Blandair.

Here's an excerpt from a letter sent by Candace Dodson Reed, a community liaison in the HoCo government, and distributed by Oakland Mills village folks.

As you may know, in last year’s budget we included funding for Phase I construction at Blandair Regional Park. This year’s budget includes $2.4 million for Blandair, funding that will be used to complete Phase I construction of the three multi-purpose artificial turf fields, a playground, trails, and restrooms included in Phase I, as well as design funding for Phase II. Planning for Blandair has been ongoing for many years, and I know that many are excited to see construction work getting underway.
