Friends & Neighbors,
We have had a difficult time in West Baltimore in recent days, but hundreds have also worked together to clean up, address needs in our city, and get ready for another day. We invite everyone to come together at the May Reservoir Hill Community Meeting to greet each other as neighbors and double our efforts at building city communities that work for everyone. Join us for food, information, discussion, and fellowship.
You are invited to the

CENTRAL WEST BALTIMORE
HEALTHY FOODS STRATEGY
In Central West Baltimore, efforts are being undertaken to improve healthy food selection and price in corner stores, increase urban farming efforts, launch cooking classes at schools and recreations centers, and bring healthier options to the Avenue Market on Pennsylvania Avenue. At our March meeting, we will hear from some of those involved with these efforts; our own Whitelock Community Farm, Baltimore City Health Department, Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, and No Boundaries Coalition. We are all working to bring many of the pieces together. Come learn about the various strategies and become part of the campaign.
TRANSFORMING WHITELOCK STREET
With the South Lots park to open in late spring and the Whitelock Community Farm’s site for expanded production being prepared there is a lot of activity on the 900 block of Whitelock Street. Whitelock Community Farm and RHIC personnel will lead a discussion about the work underway, maintenance plans, and future activity. Got questions? Want to help? Please plan to be there!
WORK TO BEGIN ON CALLOW AVENUE IN MAY
Healthy Neighborhoods and Druid Heights CDC personnel will brief the community on the status of the Callow Avenue houses being renovated, including floor plans, exterior plans, price, schedule, and other considerations such as the possibility of solar.
REDEVELOPMENT OF TUNE UP CITY
Marty Cadogan, a partner in the redevelopment of both apartment buildings at Whitelock & Brookfield, is a principal in the recent purchase of the Tune Up City building at 701 Whitelock Street. Marty will be discussing plans for the building as the first commercial development in Reservoir Hill in many years.
