Arts & Entertainment Districts

SLA Leadership, Sandra Long was the Chair of the first Arts & Entertainment Districts in America., signing the awards for the first A & E Districts across the State of Maryland. Leading program development and implementation, Maryland’s A&E districts serve as a case study and example for other States to create similar designations. The value of A & E Districts include economic and new business development, in addition to helping to develop and promote community involvement, tourism, and revitalization through tax-related incentives that attract artists, arts organizations and other creative enterprises.
