Smart Growth Maryland and its partners in the Smarter Growth Alliance for Charles County recently announced their opposition to Georgetown University’s plans to clear-cut 240 acres of Southern Maryland’s largest forest for an industrial-scale solar facility.
In late December 2018, it was revealed that Maryland Governor Larry Hogan had been quietly negotiating with former Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke on a proposed land swap that would have given Oxon Cove National Park in Prince George’s County to the state in return for 2,500-acres at South Mountain State Battlefield that would be transferred to the federal government.
Many Marylanders are concerned about State proposals to build another Bay Bridge and new toll lanes on highways. These projects could negatively impact local environmental, cultural, and historic resources and diminish the quality of life enjoyed by residents.
On Thursday, January 24, 2019, Preservation Maryland and Smart Growth Maryland hosted a free webinar on the top priorities for the preservation, conservation, and development communities during this Session of the Maryland General Assembly. That webinar is now available as a free on-demand video for all advocates.
