There are over 30,000 vacant properties in Baltimore. Abandoned buildings and vacant lots plague many of our neighborhoods, making our communities less safe and preventing them from reaching their full potential. Crime, trash, poor health, lack of green space — all these things and more are connected … issue to issue and neighborhood to neighborhood. The Green Network Plan is a bold vision for reimagining vacant and abandoned properties and transforming them into community assets, creating an interconnected system of flourishing spaces throughout the city. Through a collaborative and community-directed process, the Plan will direct resources to underinvested areas and lay the foundation for the revitalization of some of Baltimore’s most challenged neighborhoods.
