The WBC votes to reform the West Baltimore MARC TOD/Transportation Committee

In May of 2008, the WBC approved the reformation of the TOD/Transportation Committee to directly deal with projects centered around the West Baltimore MARC station. One of the committee’s objective is to create a group which has representation from the ten communities identified within the ½ mile radius of the West Baltimore MARC station. This reformed and representative group will focus on transit-oriented development (TOD), commuter parking problems, and the possible alignments of the Redline transit project in West Baltimore. John Hailey, President of Midtown Edmondson Avenue Improvement Association and Joyce Smith, Franklin Square Community Organization and Executive Director of Operation ReachOut SouthWest are functioning as interim co-chairs. Through their outreach efforts, the committee recruited representatives from eight of the ten communities, and is seeking to include more community leaders, especially from the neighborhoods of Mosher, Shipley Hill, Penrose, and Pinehurst. The current members are as follows:

Interim Co-Chairs:
  • John Hailey, President, Midtown Edmondson Avenue Improvement Association
  • Joyce Smith, Executive Director, Operation Reach Out South West and Representative, Franklin Square Community Organization
Community Representatives:
  • John Carrington, President, Bridgeview/Greenlawn Association
  • Rose Carter, Proxy, Boyd/Booth Concerned Citizens Organization
  • Robert Hunt, President, Association of Rosemont Community Organizations
  • Bertha Nixon, President, Boyd/Booth Concerned Citizens Organization
  • Reverend Lovell Parham, President, Edmondson Community Organizations and Vice-President, Rosemont Homeowners' and Tenants' Association
  • Kirin Smith, Representative of the President, Evergreen Protective Association
  • Annie Williams, President, Harlem Park Neighborhood Council
