WeMakeItNews.com speaks with former Maryland Gov. Glendening for a preview of his May 30th SGACC presentation at the College of Southern Maryland in La Plata
LISTEN to our full interview with Gov. Parris N. Glendening to hear what municipalities and regions are doing throughout the country and world to ensure sustainable growth and vibrant communities.
LISTEN to a 2-minute excerpt from the interview. Glendening says of proposed highway projects such as the Cross County Connector: “[They’re] just like the dinosaur — we’re seeing the end of them.”
This kind of prudent insight is why Glendening has been asked to speak at the Smarter Growth Alliance for Charles County’s “A Better Charles County through Smart Growth” forum May 30 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the College of Southern Maryland’s La Plata campus.
The forum also features Ed McMahon of the Urban Land Institute.
Glendening and McMahon’s presentations will underscore that Charles County is missing out on opportunities for a much better future. Some of our leaders are ignoring common sense because we’ve allowed a small group of land speculators and the development lobby to control our land-use policies. This wrong path will destroy OUR beautiful county. The message needs to be heard and shared that our county can grow smarter, and have both a robust economy and a healthy environment.
When: May 30, 2013, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Where: College of Southern Maryland (La Plata campus), Center for Business and Industry, Room 113
All are welcome. Light refreshments will be served.
RSVPs are appreciated: firstname.lastname@example.org or 410.385.2910
