Growth Through Energy and Community Health (GTECH)

Growth Through Energy and Community Health (GTECH) aims to cultivate the unrealized potential of people and places to improve the economic, social, and environmental health of communities in Allegany County.  GTECH’s projects are based on the premise that the processes involved in planning, designing, and implementing green strategies on vacant land fuel community development and stem urban decay and disinvestment.  Since 2006, GTECH has cleaned up 56 acres of vacant land and installed 23 projects on such sites, including community gardens and green play lots.  The organization also works with nonprofits, government agencies, and other policy makers to develop legislation that makes community development easier for neighborhoods.
