Portland Cement Association to Honor Queen Anne’s County For Sustainable Development

Pervious concrete pavement project brings sustainable development to Whitemarsh Park at Bloomfield Farm

The Portland Cement Association (PCA) will honor the Board of Commissioners of Queen Anne’s County with its Sustainable Leadership Award in the category of Infrastructure Projects. The Board undertook a project to construct three parking lots from pervious concrete at the Whitemarsh Park at Bloomfield Farm. Using pervious concrete allowed the project to be developed taking into account the delicate balance of the environment, ensuring that stormwater runoff was managed and erosion was greatly reduced over time.

Now in its second year, the PCA Sustainable Leadership Awards recognize government leaders around the country for their innovative policies and showcase innovative projects in their communities that exemplify creativity and best practices for the use of concrete and cement-based products. Maik Strecker of Lafarge North America will honor the Board of Commissioners at the Queen Anne’s County Commissioners Meeting.
