Sustainable Maryland Certified is a new initiative of the Environmental Finance Center at the University of Maryland (EFC) designed to support Maryland's 157 municipalities as they look for cost-effective and strategic ways to protect their natural assets and revitalize their communities. Using best practices in resource areas like water, energy, land use, health, food, and economy, a municipality can earn points toward sustainability certification.

The Mayor and Board of Aldermen adopted Resolution 11-17 in support of the Sustainable Maryland Certified program. The Sustainable Maryland Certified Program web site is: http://www.sustainablemaryland.com/index.php
