Greensboro given Sustainable Community Designation from the State of Maryland
Thursday, June 23, 2016
Caroline County – Town of Greensboro Located on the north bank of the Choptank River, the Town of Greensboro is known for its water recreation activities, historic homes, beautiful churches and the rich farmland of Caroline County. With its Sustainable Community designation, the town seeks to improve its Main Street business district by establishing a façade improvement program and beautifying its streetscape. Seeking to maximize its historic assets, Greensboro plans to conduct a market study to determine a feasible re-use for the Riverside Country Inn, which was built in 1890 and is currently vacant. The town would also like to improve the pedestrian and bike network in town, developing town-wide trails and boardwalks to improve connectivity to the Choptank River. With 15 percent of the town located in the 100 year flood-plain, Greensboro seeks to establish a green street program to mitigate flooding.
