Sustainable Communities seek to conserve resources; provide green spaces and parks for recreation and agriculture; offer many options for transportation; use natural and cultural resources wisely for future generations and consider the social and economic needs of all residents.

In 2010, Governor O’Malley signed into law Smart, Green & Growing legislation (House Bill 475, 2010 session, “The Sustainable Communities Act of 2010”) passed by the Maryland General Assembly to enhance the future of growth, development and sustainability in Maryland. This law established the “Sustainable Communities” designation in order to strengthen reinvestment and revitalization in Maryland’s older communities.
