On the anniversary of the devastating flood in historic Ellicott City, our Executive Director, Nicholas Redding reflects on Preservation Maryland’s year-long response and commitment to help the people of Ellicott City rebuild their historic community:
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 summarized our actions to provide the opportunity to learn from our experiences.
The journey through Maryland history continues for Diane Caslow, Vice President of our Board of Directors! Last month, she explored Howard County and she concentrated the adventure on Columbia, celebrating it’s 50th anniversary this year, and Ellicott City, just about one year into it’s flood recovery. Head to Howard County:
The Mid-Atlantic preservation community will convene at the Old Line State Summit on Wednesday, July 12, 2017 in Annapolis, Maryland. The one-day conference will focus on innovative and adaptable sessions, including a detailed session on the flood recovery efforts in historic Ellicott City with essential emergency preparedness tactics for every community.
