Town Awarded State’s Community Legacy Grant

The Town of Upper Marlboro is pleased to announce that we have been awarded $35,000 by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development’s Community Legacy Program this year. The Town has been working with M-NCPPC Community Planning Division to revitalize the downtown area though facade improvements, pedestrian safety improvements, and several other projects and these funds will enable us to continue this program.
