Belair Edison wins grant to control runoff

April 29, 2011|By Meredith Cohn, The Baltimore Sun

The Belair Edison neighborhood was awarded $31,100 to develop a design for a heavily traveled portion of Erdman Avenue to green the street and control polluted runoff. The neighborhood will work with partners, including business owners, residents and environmental groups on the plan for the grant, administered through the Chesapeake Bay Trust, an independent grant-making organization chartered by the state. The program, paid for by the Trust and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, was created to support street greening projects by urban communities. Grants were awarded to 10 Maryland communities at the EPA's Green Streets-Green Jobs Forum held in Silver Spring this week.
