BALTIMORE CITY COUNCIL UNANIMOUSLY ADOPTS RESOLUTION URGING STATE LAWMAKERS TO ADOPT CRITERIA FOR STATE CENTER REDEVELOPMENT
March 1, 2018, Baltimore, MD— After a year of dimming prospects for State Center redevelopment, a step forward took place this week.
The Baltimore City Council unanimously adopted City Council Resolution 18-0069R supporting the redevelopment of the State Center complex by urging state lawmakers to adopt the criteria that the surrounding communities have advocated for over 12 years.
Introduced by Councilman Eric T. Costello and co-sponsored by Council President Bernard C. “Jack” Young and all Councilmembers, the resolution requests the General Assembly to pass, and the Governor to sign, HB 1286. This bill protects the participation and planning process of the communities in the State Center Neighborhood Alliance in any development effort going forward on the 28 acre site.
