Howard County Executive Ken Ulman has hired an energy manager and released a detailed plan as part of an effort to reduce greenhouse gases that scientists believe add to global warming.

In addition, Ulman released a plan that details the county's carbon footprint and lists ways the county plans to reduce it.

He said he will not ask for tax increases, but won't decide until March whether to dip into the county's $47.5 million rainy-day fund.

Howard County government and developer Howard Hughes Corp. have agreed to a five-year, $19-million renovation plan for Columbia's Merriweather Post Pavilion, County Executive Ken Ulman announced Monday. Renovation is expected to be complete in 2019 and will include a raised main roof, new restrooms and concessions, a new stage and new artist dressing rooms. Construction will be carried out during the off-season, beginning at the close of the concert schedule in the fall of this year.  The plan also ensures that ownership of Merriweather will be handed from the developer to a county-created nonprofit, the Downtown Columbia Arts and Culture Commission, after completion of the renovations.  “This news means Merriweather Post Pavilion will get the upgrades it needs now, and will be part of the lifeblood of our community for decades to come,” Ulman said in a news release.

Howard County Executive Ken Ulman has proposed a bill that would force downtown Columbia developer Howard Hughes Corp. to relinquish ownership of Merriweather Post Pavilion earlier than anticipated, a move Ulman hopes will expedite the redevelopment of the aging concert venue and other public improvement projects in downtown. Ulman said, though excited by the progress of Howard Hughes and others on commercial projects, such as the addition of a Whole Foods and a 380-unit apartment complex called Metropolitan Downtown Columbia, he is frustrated that civic improvements to downtown, such as Merriweather and a planned pathway connecting east and west Columbia, are lagging.
