Helping Maryland municipalities go green to save: New UMD initiative
Date:6/27/2011

c development, and addressing local health needs and inequities, she explains.

"We want to leverage our expertise to assist local officials across the state as they embark on sustainability programs," says University of Maryland President Wallace D. Loh. "This can stimulate economic development and community wellbeing, and that's a vital part of our service mission as a Land Grant institution focused on the statewide needs of Maryland citizens"

HOW IT WORKS

The program establishes a point system - earn 150 points and the community wins certification. Points are earned by setting up programs to address a range of issues such as global warming, energy, pollution, land use, air and water quality, health equity, support for local businesses, sustainable agriculture, green buildings, transportation, and more.

If the municipal initiatives meet established standards, the actions will be accepted and counted towards certification. Also, communities can earn points for new or pre-existing programs deemed to be "innovative demonstration projects."
