Md. offers town of Thurmont $1.4M in land deal

THURMONT — The Maryland Department of Natural Resources is offering the town of Thurmont $1.4 million for about 400 acres of land it owns.

The Frederick News Post reports that a meeting will be held July 17 to discuss the potential land sale. If the town agrees to sell the land, it will become part of Cunningham Falls State Park. The park is named for its 78-foot waterfall, the largest cascading waterfall in the state.

Visitors can go hiking, boating, fishing and camping in the park.

  1. On the one hand Maryland has a recent history of very substantial budget deficits for which there is companion recent history of the Governor and General Assembly proposing a myriad of substantial tax increases each session. On the other hand we also seem to have a history of profligate funding of discretionary (land purchases, tuition support for Undocumented “resident children”, et al)spending.

    Isn’t it past due time for responsible State focus on addressing available tax moneys to meet essential debts?
