On a rainy Saturday in late September community leaders and elected officials took time to explore both realized and unrealized development opportunities around Metro Subway and Light Rail stations in Baltimore.
The tour, organized by the Citizens Planning and Housing Association, the Baltimore Neighborhood Collaborative, and the Greater Baltimore Committee, included projects at differing scales and stages of development. Participants saw garages under construction at Owings Mills, soon-to-be-developed parking lots at State Center, the completed Symphony Center, and nearly complete Clipper Mill.
At each stop local developers, community representatives, or public officials offered insights about the projects and how to best realize their full potential. Elected official participants included Senator Lisa Gladden, Delegate Sandy Rosenberg, Delegate Adrienne Jones, as well as representatives of Baltimore City Council President Sheila Dixon and Councilwoman Helen Holton.
