On October 29, 2018, the Howard County Council passed CB75-2018 with amendments, as advocated for by many Marylanders, that lessens the bill’s original threat to the Historic Preservation Commissions’ independent nature.
On October 1, 2018, CB75-2018 was introduced during a legislative session of the Howard County Council. This new legislation could radically upend over forty years of preservation planning and investment in one fell swoop.

Preservation Maryland is grateful to these donors who so generously supported our flood relief programs in Ellicott City in 2016.
Update: On the afternoon of May 27, 2018, Ellicott City, Maryland endured yet another devastating flood— the second time in less than two years. Preservation Maryland again stands ready to support the rebuilding, recovery, and rehabilitation of this historic community.
One Year Later: Thanks to your support, the response by Preservation Maryland to the Ellicott City flood of 2016 was an opportunity to utilize our strengths – our understanding of historic buildings – to help those impacted. It has also been one of the greatest challenges. In our “After Action Report,” we documented our actions to provide the opportunity to inform and enhance future preparedness and recovery efforts here in Maryland and beyond. Your continued support is what made our work in Ellicott City possible and is the reason we will be able to tackle the next challenge when it arises.
