Affording a Quality Community:

Balancing the Quality of Life Versus the Cost of Living

We are pleased to provide the opportunity for you to attend the 8th annual Western Maryland Local Government Exchange.  The Exchange's goal is to provide an event where local government representatives can share information concerning best management practices for land use and other issues.  The focus this year is on "Balancing the Quyality of Life Versus the Cost of Living".

Agenda topics include:

  • Assess and understand what our community has at the moment (Strengthening the Local Housing Stock)
  • Discuss and consider what our community wants to plan for the future (Environmental Regulatory Mandates:  The Cost of Implementation)
  • Determine how to pay for the plans (The Changing Face of Energy in Western Maryland)
