What a wonderful event! The SCNA and Mount Royal CDC cannot thank The Gathering enough for believing in our cause and for showcasing what a rich and vibrant place West Baltimore can be! State Center Redevelopment will bring jobs and access to jobs, affordable housing and it will end the food desert through its transit-orientated development and a focus on community – all the communities. Close to 1,000 people turned out to this event – excited about the possibilities of the future!
Let’s #growbaltimore at #statecenter! Let’s invest in Baltimore West and continue to #gather there!
