Craig Purcell is Named to Neighborhood Design Center Board of Directors
Since our establishment in 1968, the mission of the non-profit Neighborhood Design Center has been to improve neighborhood livability, viability and sustainability by providing pro-bono design and planning services in support of community-sponsored initiatives. We do this by mobilizing volunteer architects, planners, landscape architects, engineers, and other design professionals who donate their professional services to help groups in the initial stages of neighborhood revitalization efforts. NDC not only takes on projects that serve the public good but also strive to achieve the following community service goals:
Strengthen community participation in neighborhood improvement efforts
Educate the public about the value of good design, planning, and preservation as community revitalization tools
Serve as a catalyst for increased investment in neighborhood development

Governor Martin O’Malley of Maryland appoints Bryce Turner to the State’s Sustainable Growth Commission. Jon Laria of Ballard Spahr chairs the Commission.
Senate Bill 278 from the 2010 session of the Maryland General Assembly established the Maryland Sustainable Growth Commission. The Maryland Sustainable Growth Commission transforms 2007-2010's Task Force on the Future for Growth and Development into a permanent commission to advise on growth and development issues in the State.
Prior to the creation of the Task Force in 2007, there was no statewide forum where stakeholders could gather to discuss growth and development issues and policies. The former Economic Growth, Resource Protection and Planning Commission, which was created by the 1992 Growth Act, was allowed to sunset in 2003. The creation of a permanent Commission creates a broader and more established forum to consider and make recommendations on growth and development issues.
