Baltimore Organization Calls For An End To Blight

Baltimoreans United in Leadership Development is calling on city leaders to pass a $50 million bond to help raze abandoned buildings, and rebuild on the property.

"We believe what is being done in Philadelphia can be done here. That's why BUILD asked candidates running for office during the last city election to endorse a $50 million bond bill to pay for the demolition and acquisition of vacant properties and reassemble them into large tracts of land that could be redeveloped into thriving residential and commercial areas. Philadelphia proved it to be a formula that works."
