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 Tuesday, dozens of Marylanders joined together in Annapolis to deliver a strong message of the importance of historic preservation to the health and wealth of our Old Line State.
Preservation Marylandis proud to convene this annual meeting of advocates that has shown demonstrated results in increasing funding and support for Maryland’s heritage from the administration and legislature.
Our major asks included:
For the first time in seven years, the Governor’s budget includes funding for historic preservation grants funds. Now we need legislator’s support to protect those funds.
With federal tax reform on the horizon, the federal historic tax credit is threatened. We’ve asked Maryland elected officials tosign-on to a letter to Congress in support of this economic development program.
