Architecture Building Auditorium
You are invited to Smart Growth in Maryland - A Panel Discussion: What Works? What Doesn't? Where do we go Next? Those actively involved with Maryland's recently passed Smart, Green and Growing legislation will come together to discuss its design, implementation and impact for the future.
In December, 2007, the State Task Force on the Future for Growth and Development in Maryland delivered its report, "Where Do We Grow from Here?" which assessed current conditions in the State and outlined a series of recommendation for further smart, sustainable growth in Maryland. The report provided a context for the State Legislature to plan for Maryland's future growth. Last May, 2009 Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley signed into law the Smart, Green, and Growing legislation agenda, which takes a sustainable approach to development in Maryland. It represents the most significant achievements in smart growth in more than a decade. We have brought a panel of noted experts in the field to discuss this legislation - its design, its implementation and its impact for the future.
