Mayor asks GBC to help craft city plans for job creation

The Greater Baltimore Committee, the Economic Alliance of Greater Baltimore and the Baltimore Development Corporation (BDC) have been asked by Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake to jointly develop a strategy for job creation and business expansion in the city.

Rawlings-Blake made the announcement during her State of the City speech on February 7, where she focused on supporting job creation for the 21st century.

In her speech, Rawlings-Blake also announced her intention to restructure the BDC into three main focus areas: developing real estate; expansion, retention and attraction of businesses, and commercial development in neighborhoods beyond downtown.
