Attached here in the “New Maps” Section, the proposed EZ Map is available for download.
During our meetings with each City Council Member, we listened to their recommendations and have made to following changes:
- Included the businesses located in Locust Point
- Continued to remove residential areas in the Carroll Camden Focus Area, Northern Remington, Jones Falls Focus Area, and throughout the city.
- Included businesses along East Monument Street (just east of JHU)
- Included businesses at the Pulaski Highway/East Fayette Street split (just north of Patterson Park)
- Extended the Carroll-Camden Focus Area by 1 block to include the entire BioPark Footprint
- Included the proposed design footprint for the Center/West Project in Poppleton
- Included the businesses at the intersection of Park Heights Ave/West Cold Spring Ln/Reisterstown Rd (just south of Central Park Heights)
- Modified the size of the Oldtown Focus Area to accommodate the surrounding parcels.
We will be introducing this to Baltimore City Council on Monday, April 16th at 5pm.
