COLUMBIA, Md. —
On Wednesday, Howard County earned a first-of-its-kind distinction for environmental practices, and in the process explained that it’s about more than just water quality and air filtration.
Howard County has set the baseline to the rest of the world when it comes to being green. You may not realize it, even playgrounds, are a part of it.
“The first county in our nation to get certified LEED Platinum,” said U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Maryland.
