Negotiations are under way that could make 100 acres of West County land available to the county at a reduced price for a park.
Those talks also include the possibility of bringing a West Coast company to the site, which is being touted as a public-private partnership that would provide jobs, ball fields and playgrounds.
Details of the venture, made public last night at a meeting of a task force seeking parkland, were not divulged.
"Hopefully in the near future, we will have something positive to say," said County Council Chairman David G. Boschert, D-Crownsville.
The land, owned byPotomac resident Doug Legum, is locatedsouth of Route 198 and just west of Welch's Trailer Park, next to the Fort Meade boundary.
