CLEAR SPRING, Md. (AP) - The Maryland Department of Natural Resources says it wants to build a new office building at the Indian Springs Wildlife Management Area near the western Maryland town of Clear Spring.

The construction project is part of a 15-year plan that was released Tuesday for the 6,600-acre property. The plan is open for public comment through Feb. 28.

The current office is an 1830s log house with brick veneer that the agency says is too outdated or inadequate to support the needs of the staff despite an extensive renovation in 2012 to stabilize the structure.

The agency says it plans to demolish a handful of other dilapidated houses on the property.

The area is known mainly as a deer hunting ground but it’s open for a variety of outdoor activities.
