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.
With graphic video and photographs the new documentary explores the impacts of the disastrous flood and its aftermath. Victims and first responders relive that night, while volunteers and government leaders recount the difficult days that followed and the long road back. Preservation Maryland Executive Director Nicholas Redding was interviewed for the documentary to explain the role the organization played in the town’s recovery.
