At the Taneytown City Council workshop Wednesday evening, most council members vocally supported the decision to finish the application to submit this month, as the state is accepting them in June and in October. Sustainable Communities aim to conserve resources, provide green spaces and recreational parks, offer transportation and more to its residents, according to the Maryland Department of Planning. Only specific portions of Taneytown would fall under the Sustainable Community designation: downtown, the city’s older areas, two townhouse communities, Memorial Park and Taneytown High School Park, according to Wieprecht, who is in charge of crafting the application.
