The County Executive also announced a new Facebook Page: Ellicott City Safe and Sound. This page is aimed to provide the community more information about the progress in Old Ellicott City, Howard County. This page is managed by the Office of the County Executive.

I am happy to see a plan selected (even if I did guess incorrectly). I look forward to watching this plan implemented.
