ELLICOTT CITY, MD – The Howard County Public Facilities & Spaces Report Evaluation and Action Commission is seeking community assistance in gathering historical records behind the naming of Howard County Government’s four buildings: Carroll, George Howard, Ligon and Warfield, for its draft "The Four Governor Buildings Report". Located in the County’s main governmental complex off Courthouse Drive in Ellicott City, these four buildings serve as the epicenter of County Government business and operations.
If you have historical information or suggestions on material about these buildings you think the Commission should include in its draft "The Four Governor Buildings Report" before it is finalized, the community is encouraged to either email [email protected] or participate in one of the Commission’s upcoming monthly meeting. Dates and times of the Commission’s monthly meetings can be found on its website.

The Commission is tasked with: reviewing the 2021 Public Spaces Commission Report; completing and implementing a strategic plan to obtain community feedback on the Report; creating a plan to review names, locations obtained from community feedback; reviewing public spaces that were not reviewed by the previous Commission; making recommendations based on the rubric created by the previous Commission and evaluate and propose changes to the rubric, as needed; and making recommendations based on community feedback.
