Liberty Heights LINCS
Liberty Heights Avenue Corridor
Liberty Heights Avenue is a primarily east-west corridor running from Druid Hill Park all the way up to Baltimore County, spanning 3.3 miles. Garrison Boulevard is a primarily north-south corridor running from Egerton Road to Duvall Avenue, spanning .6 miles. These Corridors are anchored by Mondawmin Mall to the east, the newly renovated Pangea Oaks Apartments to the south, and the new ShopRite Grocery Store to the west. Additional assets include Baltimore City Community College, Hanlon Park, Lake Ashburton, the Mondawmin MTA transit hub, The Dorothy J Luxury Apartments, the new Parks and People Headquarters and Baltimore City’s first TGI Friday’s restaurant.
Along both corridors are very strong, stable residential neighborhoods with high homeownership rates and incredibly active community associations. All these assets create an opportunity to leverage additional improvements and investments to better serve the strong surrounding communities.
LINCS for Liberty Heights Avenue & Garrison Boulevard officially started on February 8th, 2016, when residents and stakeholders attended a briefing session at the Forest Park branch library. The kickoff meeting was held on February 29th where residents discussed their vision for the corridor as well as identified strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. With that information in hand, the LINCS Community Advisory Committee met on March 14th to determine the listening session topics which will include Community Economic Development, Transportation, Housing/Code Enforcement/Sanitation, Public Safety, and Recreation and Parks/Public Art.
The first LINCS listening session for Liberty Heights Avenue & Garrison Boulevard was held on Tuesday, May 24th. The topic for the first listening session was Community Economic Development. The agenda for that meeting can be downloaded here.
