'Proposed that' is the correct form, so that eliminates C, D and E

Both A and B has a clause that modifies the first part of sentence.

In A, which modifies the development of park, but that is not the intended meaning here.
In B, which modifies the park, hence B is the correct one.

Hope this helps

A note before attacking the question:
- "PROPOSE THAT X BE Y" - (subjunctive) - is correct idiom.

The commission proposed that funding for the park's development, which could be open to the public early next year. is obtained through a local bond issue.
(A) that funding for the park's development, which could be open to the public early next year, is
Wrong. Misplaced modifier problem: "which" refers to the development.

(B) that funding for development of the park, which could be open to the public early next year, be
Correct. Propose THAT x BE y ==> correct idiom.

(C) funding for the development of the park, perhaps open to the public early next year, to be
Wrong. Propose X to be Y --> wrong idiom.

(D) funds for the park's development, perhaps open to the public early next year, be
Wrong. Misplaced modifier problem. "the development" can't open to the public.

(E) development funding for the park, which could be open to the public early next year, is to be
Wrong. Propose x is to be y --> wrong idiom.

Hope it helps.
