9-21-11: Stimulating the Neighborhood

September 21, 2011 at 8:15 am Leave a comment

Baltimore non-profit Healthy Neighborhoods received a $26 million federal stimulus grant to buy, renovate, and resell houses. Is the program selling enough homes to stabilize neighborhoods like Reservoir Hill and Bel Air-Edison?

Sheilah talks to Healthy Neighborhoods president Mark Sissman, and to Marcus Parran, who just bought a house through the program.

Healthy Neighborhoods is selling homes in seven Baltimore neighborhoods: Barclay/Old Goucher, Belair-Edison, Better Waverly, Coldstream Homestead Montebello, Ednor Gardens, Patterson Park/McElderry Park, and Reservoir Hill.

On Saturday from 10am to 2pm, Healthy Neighborhoods is holding an event at the Patterson Park Public Charter School cafeteria building (2726 E. Baltimore St.). To register for the event, call 410-332-0387 x156 or visit the Healthy Neighborhoods website.
