While Baltimore hasn’t experienced the short-term population losses that other cities have dealt with — we still think Maryland legislators need to take a look at this bill and give their support.  We’re very excited about this piece of legislation — it could be used to do amazing things in cities across America, and while this isn’t “Federal Slumlord Watch” — it’s only logical that if this could work in a city like St. Louis, something on a smaller scale could be introduced in our State Legislature for Maryland.

New Federal and State laws, coupled with local projects like the Outer Harbor Initiative could assist in making Baltimore a liveable city for all of its residents.  It’s a win-win!
