Takoma Park is once again on the path of outstanding environmentalism after being recognized for their efforts in energy conservation. It is also the only city in Maryland to be selected as a semifinalist in a nationwide energy-saving competition run by Georgetown University. If Takoma Park wins, the city will receive $5 million in 2017.
Ten more finalists for the competition will be announced in the beginning of 2017, and the winner will be announced at the end of 2017. The residents of Takoma Park take pride in this recognition and hope their efforts “expand to more residents and businesses”. Way to go Takoma Park for leading the way in environmentally friendly urban living!
