STEVENSVILLE — The Department of Natural Resources offered a public meeting at Matapeake Elementary School on Wednesday evening, Feb. 22, in response to public outcry for more answers on the proposed Love Point site to be used as a concrete fabrication location for replacement Bay Bridge deck panels. Area residents came to the meeting with a host of questions.

For many, they felt they were left with no “concrete” answers, more questions, and a sense of profound frustration over the handling of the project, its impact on the Love Point community and the state and local governments lack of communication to the public. Attending the meeting, Steven J. Arentz, Maryland State Delegate (R), asked several important questions related to the lack of communication – even at his level. He went on to say the residents he was serving had a right to be properly informed. Arentz noted he had been inquiring after this project for over a year, and was not happy with the story the DNR was presenting. Also in attendance were Queen Anne’s County Commissioners Christopher Corchiarino, Philip Dumenil and James Moran along with County Administrator Todd Mohn.
