MD Historical Trust Names New Hazard Mitigation Program Officer

In a November 21 email notice, the Maryland Historical Trust (MHT) announced that Jennifer Sparenberg will be taking over as MHT’s new Hazard Mitigation Program Officer.  From the email notice:

This week, the Maryland Historical Trust welcomed Jennifer Sparenberg, a Certified Floodplain Manager and a hazard mitigation planner, as MHT’s new Hazard Mitigation Program Officer.  In her work in the private sector, Jen wrote and contributed to numerous hazard mitigation plans for local governments and flood mitigation publications for FEMA’s Building Science Branch.  …

Over the next two years, Jen will develop and implement MHT’s new Cultural Resources Hazard Mitigation Program, aimed at protecting historic places, archaeological sites, and cultural landscapes from the effects of sea level rise and coastal storms.  Under the program, MHT will develop model guidance and educational materials to assist local government with hazard mitigation planning for their cultural resources.  …

As part of the new program, Jen will administer grants to help local governments plan for cultural resources threatened by coastal hazards.  Together, these activities will help protect Maryland’s heritage, achieving a more resilient future while preserving our past.
