CENTRAL WEST BALTIMORE CHOICE NEIGHBORHOOD TRANSFORMATION PLAN

Executive Summary

The Central West Baltimore Choice Neighborhoods Transformation Plan is an ambitious initiative to revitalize an important part of Baltimore that has experienced decades of disinvestment and a stark pattern of racial segregation. This effort began in 2009 as a grass-roots coalition, convened by Jubilee Baltimore and including residents of Upton, Druid Heights, Marble Hill, Eutaw Place, Bolton Hill, and Reservoir Hill. Meeting every other Saturday morning for three years, this coalition worked to break down physical and social barriers created and reinforced by 1960s Urban Renewal projects and knit divided neighborhoods back together. Their efforts paid off: in 2010, HUD awarded Jubilee a Choice Neighborhoods grant to develop a comprehensive neighborhood plan.
