Green Development

Howard County has a num­ber of pro­grams that pro­mote “green” build­ing and devel­op­ment. There are Green Build­ing Require­ments for large pub­lic and pri­vate build­ings, Green Hous­ing poli­cies for pub­lic hous­ing, and Green Neigh­bor­hood stan­dards. The Green Build­ing Tax Credit encour­aged the use of renew­able energy such as solar and geot­her­mal use in homes.
