The Answers Have Arrived - In June 2018 the Mayor and Town Council of Mountain Lake Park hosted a public meeting regarding the proposed Oakland Bypass. Local residents had a lot of questions for the officials from the Maryland Dept. of Transportation (MDOT) who were in attendance. Mark Stutzman, on behalf of Engage Mountain Maryland, compiled our questions. Click here to read the responses.

Town Parks are equipped with video surveillance. All parks and walking trails in town are trash-free. Visitors are to put litter they generate in trash bags and carry it home. This will improve the appearance of parks and trails by removing trash cans that detract from the beauty of the environment.
