Historic preservation and smart growth are cut from the same cloth – and are interconnected in a variety of important ways. When we grow smart, we revitalize historic communities and keep from sprawling outward. It’s a message that Preservation Maryland has been making for years – but in the past several months the organization has become much more serious about this issue following its merger with 1000 Friends of Maryland, the statewide smart growth organization. Kimberly Golden Brandt, the former Executive Director of 1000 Friends now heads up Smart Growth Maryland, a campaign of Preservation Maryland. On this week’s PreserveCast we’ll learn why the organizations merged and what it could mean for the future of Maryland.
