Smart Growth Maryland is a campaign of Preservation Maryland which advocates for a more environmentally and economically sustainable future that creates opportunities for all Marylanders through better development patterns. A major component of this campaign is focused on implementing smart growth policies at the local level across Maryland.
This is an important partnership for effective advocacy because Maryland’s history and heritage was shaped by and is still intrinsically tied to the land and water. By ensuring the conservation of the landscape and waterways across the state, we are in turn preserving the historic cultural landscapes that are integral to preserving the history of Maryland. We also know that the environmental impact of the reuse and rehabilitation of historic buildings is much lower than that of demolition and new construction.
