Success!! Thanks to all of you!

We had an amazing night!  Full of good drinks, wonderful atmosphere, and most importantly, great company!

Thank you everyone who came out in support of State Center redevelopment!   The State Center Neighborhood Alliance, along with Mount Royal Community Development Corporation hosted a great event!

We were honored to have so many local leaders in attendance, to include Council President Jack Young, Councilman Eric Costello, Councilman Carl Stokes, as well as representatives from the Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s Office and the Baltimore Development Corporation. Former Mayor Sheila Dixon and former Delegate Shawn Tarrant also attended the event to express their support of a new State Center!

Community leaders from Druid Heights Community Development Corporation, Heritage Crossing Residents Association, Historic Mount Royal Terrace, McCulloh Homes Residents Association, Madison Park Improvement Association, Marble Hill Community Association, Midtown Development Corporation, Mt. Royal Improvement Association, Mt. Vernon Belvedere Association, Pennsylvania Ave Redevelopment Collaborative, Seton Hill Association, United Baptist Missionary Convention & Auxiliaries of Maryland and Upton Planning Committee were in instrumental in planning and most were even able to attend! Also showing support were the Maryland State Medical Society CEO Gene Ransom III and UMd Student Bar Assn President Ben Smith.  What a list!

Stay tuned – we still have a lot more work to do, and we’ll be calling on you to keep up the pressure.  Let’s get this done!
