The Rouse Project Breadcrumbs
The Rouse Project may be leveraging the public affairs firm Adeo Advocacy for its website (and potentially for Columbia Association election advertising).
The founder and president of Adeo Advocacy was previously a Managing Partner at KOFA Public Affairs (now KO Public Affairs).
KO Public Affairs is led by two present-day registered Howard County lobbyists for The Howard Hughes Corporation, Howard County’s largest developer.
The Howard Hughes Corporation has been actively boasting to worldwide investors about their “ability to control cities” and how they strive for “ownership and monopoly control” of Columbia, MD as they “control [Master Plan development] rights through Rouse legacy”.
The Rouse Project has been using a tree logo that is extremely similar to an image that is trademarked/owned by “Howard Research and Development Corp“, which is a business proxy of The Howard Hughes Corporation.
