Mayor Rawlings-Blake and Housing Commissioner Paul Graziano will join residents for the demolition of blighted properties in the Park Heights neighborhood.

As part of a major community revitalization plan, Baltimore City has now acquired more than 80% of the properties in the Park Heights needed to launch a major redevelopment effort. All of the properties in the 4600, 4700, and 4800 block of Park Heights Avenue are targeted for demolition. The even side of the block is expected to be demolished by spring 2016, followed by the odd side of the block.  All demolition work in the Park Heights Major Redevelopment Area is expected to be completed by summer 2016.

This round of demolition is the apart of the Mayor’s nationally-acclaimed Vacants to Value initiative, which addresses long-term blight and lays the groundwork for future growth.
