OUR MISSION: MANAGED GROWTH
The Talbot Preservation Alliance was founded in 1999 by Talbot County citizens with the common goal of preserving the unique and fragile environment of our county. We work to accomplish this objective through education, advocacy and, occasionally, through litigation.
We firmly support the principles of “Smart Growth” endorsed by the last four Maryland governors. We work in partnership with other community organizations, inside and outside our county, to encourage adherence to those principles by monitoring the enforcement of ordinances that support managed growth. Because land-use decisions are controlled by elected and appointed officials at the local level, we help to elect and support public officials who endorse smart growth principles.
As a Maryland non-profit organization, our work is accomplished through the efforts of hundreds of volunteers. Our non-partisan volunteers share our love for the fields, woods, waterways and small-towns that characterize our rural community.
If these values are important to you, we would love to add you to our number. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
TALBOT PRESERVATION ALLIANCE SUPPORTS SMART GROWTH
While some of our critics describe TPA as a “no growth” advocacy group, this characterization is inaccurate. TPA does not oppose growth that is within the parameters described in our local comprehensive plans and zoning ordinances. We believe in strongly supporting the legally required local plans that the public has helped craft.
To illustrate TPA’s willingness to support legitimate projects we offer the following examples:
