Firm hired to work on Shafer Park project
BOONSBORO - The Boonsboro Town Council has hired a Hagers-town engineering firm to begin work on the expansion of Shafer Park.
The council voted Monday to accept Arro Consulting Inc.'s $27,815 proposal, which includes survey work and construction coordination.
More than two years ago, the town bought about 50 acres of the former King Farm behind Shafer Park with the intention of developing a larger park, Councilman Richard Hawkins said.
A group of seven citizens has developed a tentative plan for the park, he said.
The first phase includes a soccer field and softball field. Eventually, the town wants to build a dog park, 1.7 miles of walking trails, a pond, swimming pool and library.
