News & Events

The Edmonston Green Street project has transformed Decatur Street, our main residential street, into a fully environmentally responsible street.  It utilizes the best sustainability practices from across the country - from the tree canopy overhead to the storm water system underground.

Green Street Project

port townThe Port Towns are the towns of Bladensburg, Colmar Manor, Cottage City, and Edmonston, Maryland. The towns are the starting point of the Anacostia Trails Area that travels to Laurel, Maryland.  In 1994 Bladensburg, Colmar Manor, and Cottage City agreed to work together towards a common goal – Community Revitalization. The union was established as “The Port Towns” because the Anacostia flows through each town and in the 1700s and 1800s the area that is now the Bladensburg Waterfront Park was once a major tobacco port for Maryland.  See Port Towns Business Directory

Edmonston is a small, friendly community located 2.5 miles from Washington, D.C., with a population of approximately 1500 residents, and is a member of the "Port Towns" organization.  

Edmonston has a Mayor & Town Council form of government, in addition to

its own Police, Code Enforcement, and Public Works Departments.

Edmonston is home to one of the "Greenest Streets in America," thanks

to the completion of our "Green Street" Project on November 9, 2010.

The "Green Street" Project has become a model for many other

communities wishing to "Go Green," and is just one of the many ways Edmonston is working hard to make our town a "healthier" place to live!
