Maryland gets its first 'Certified Sustainable' community: Berlin
Date:4/24/2012

dustry experts, the program's executive committee approved the Town of Berlin's certification, making it the first Maryland municipality to achieve this distinction.

"Our citizens share a common belief that in the 21st century for any community to obtain sustainable success, environmental stewardship and economic opportunity must be two sides of the same coin," says Berlin Mayor Gee Williams. "By actively working together with citizens, local environmental groups and the state, the Town of Berlin seeks to be a leading community on the Eastern Shore in environmental responsibility. We are most grateful that the efforts of our citizens are being recognized through this very special honor."

The University of Maryland's Environmental Finance Center formally launched SMC in June 2011, based on a successful program in New Jersey. Berlin quickly signed on as the first participating community.

SMC is a partnership that has evolved and been built on the contributions and talents of many. SMC sponsors include the Maryland Municipal League, the Town Creek Foundation and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Program partners include the UMD National Center for Smart Growth, as well as 87 other organizations from the public and private sectors, nonprofits, and academia.

The Environmental Finance Center is one of ten university-based centers across the country whose mission is to help communities identify sustainable strategies for financing their resource protection goals.
