Governor Hogan Speaking

On August 19, Governor Larry Hogan delivered the closing address during the 2017 Maryland Association of Counties (MACo) Summer Conference in Ocean City. During his address, the governor announced his signing of Executive Order 01.01.2017.18, which directs state officials to create a new State Development Plan that promotes smart growth initiatives.

“As I have traveled across Maryland, local elected officials have repeatedly asked for a plan that better reflects the needs of our state,” Governor Hogan said. “One that will improve coordination between state agencies and local governments, support thoughtful growth and infrastructure planning, stimulate economic development and revitalization in existing and planned communities, and will conserve and enhance the state’s natural and cultural resources.”
