  1. “See SSPP Blog Post: “”No Sustainability without Smart Growth ”

    “In Maryland, the governor’s office is saying all the right things and doing many of them. Yet the road forward (or perhaps railroad track forward is the better metaphor) will be bumpy and uneven. ”

  2. This is great! Green construction is something which is in great need and offers a huge array of opportunities. That said, taking it to the next level as it looks as if Maryland is, is a huge step. there is so much which can be done. We are involved in the construction industry, more specifically concrete pumping. Now, more than ever recycling of concrete and other similar materials is to some degree becoming “common”. That said, there is still a lot more which can be done in the vein of Green Construction. Thanks for the news! Dave
