Maryland Sustainable Community
The Sustainable Communities program enables collaboration aimed at increasing transit oriented development and improving commercial and housing opportunities in existing rural, suburban and urban communities around Maryland. In 2012, Centreville was selected as having identified a specific local area in need of revitalization and has created a comprehensive strategy to encourage and guide local investment. Centreville’s proposal focuses on improvements that will enhance outdoor activities and thus boost economic development in the town.
Sustainable Maryland Certified Community
Sustainable Maryland is a certification program for municipalities in Maryland that want to go green, save money and take steps to sustain their quality of life over the long term. Sustainable Maryland is a collaborative effort between the Environmental Finance Center (EFC) at the University of Maryland and the Maryland Municipal League to replicate the success of the Sustainable Jersey initiative throughout the Mid-Atlantic States, beginning in Maryland.
Tree City USA
The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the USDA Forest Service. Centreville was named Tree City USA for two years for our commitment to urban forestry and met the four standards to become a Tree City USA community.
