Community-based Projects

The Department of Planning (DOP) funds a community-selected priority project in each INSPIRE area. The projects identified in the INSPIRE planning process often create or improve places for residents to play, socialize, and participate in activities. Recent INSPIRE community projects include park renovations, murals, vacant lot greening, community gardens, and walking paths. DOP partners with residents, neighborhood organizations, City agencies, Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts (BOPA), and other non-profit organizations to achieve these projects.
