OAKLAND — The town of Oakland will receive $31,500 to improve Broadford Lake Park as part of Program Open Space funding approved Wednesday by the Maryland Board of Public Works and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown.
Funding will be used to install a handicapped-accessible walkway for a pavilion, create additional parking for the ballfield and add safety lighting along the entrance road.
The three-member Board of Public Works is comprised of Gov. Martin O’Malley, 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.
