HEC Grant Goes to Support Historic District’s Camera Alert Network

With funds raised during HEC’s 2019 Decorator Show House, HEC created the 2020 Historic Ellicott City Revitalization Grant Program—grants aimed at funding improvements of properties within the Ellicott City Historic District.

The first grant has been approved and is for the HEC Camera Network, LLC, a project to expand the early warning camera system in Old Ellicott City. While the installation of this network of cameras serves a variety of purposes in the town, HEC is pleased with this project’s focus on providing an alert system for residence and business owners so that they can make informed decisions in the event of heavy rain that has proven to be damaging to many of the historic structures, as well as a threat to the lives of those there.
