Let's get ready for Summer! We are hosting another clean-up event at the Ynot Lot on May 15th from 10am-1pm. We'll be picking up trash and litter (especially microtrash!), placing down mulch, and doing some general maintenance. Gloves, trash bags, tools and supplies will be provided. Please sign up to ensure we have enough. Dress for the weather in clothes that are okay to get dirty. Everyone is welcome to participate, including youth with adult supervision.

If you have access to a truck to help with moving mulch and tools, please email Jo at jogutierrezbarnes@centralbaltimore.org

Covid Safety: This event will be outdoors. If you are experiencing symptoms of Covid-19 or may have been exposed to the virus, please stay home and join us next time.

Mission Statement

Founded in 2006, the mission of the Central Baltimore Partnership is to galvanize the renaissance of Central Baltimore. We pursue this mission with more than 100 partners, including: nonprofits (ranging from small neighborhood associations to large universities and hospitals), businesses (of all sizes), and city agencies active in the eleven neighborhoods and one commercial district of Central Baltimore. This comprises: Abell, Barclay, Charles North, Charles Village, Greenmount West, Harwood, Oakenshawe, Old Goucher, Midway, Remington, Wyman Park, and Waverly Main Street (a commercial district participating in the official Baltimore City Main Street Program). Central Baltimore also includes Station North Arts District, the first area in Baltimore to receive state designation as an Arts & Entertainment District.

Description

Our approach
By bringing together the visions and the talents of diverse stakeholders, the Central Baltimore Partnership is able execute a comprehensive redevelopment strategy that involves everyone here. We are committed to ensuring that the benefits of our work extend to the entire community, especially our most underserved residents. To make this happen, we assess community needs (and interact), using everything from surveys, to public meetings, to social media, to task forces. We have a small staff. But, due to the width and breadth of our Partners, we engage in a wide variety of activities from redeveloping landmark buildings into vital community hubs, to bridging the digital divide, to feeding frontline workers during a pandemic.

Broad community participation
CBP is guided by two action plans - The 2012 Homewood Community Partners Initiative: Call to Action Plan (commissioned by Johns Hopkins University), and the 2017 Front & Center: A 5-Year Equity Plan for Central Baltimore. Each plan was created with broad community participation. We are governed by a Steering Committee that reflects the diversity of our Partners and the area we serve. The Central Baltimore Partnership is engaged in numerous programs, both short and long term.
