Bay Trust gives neighborhoods $15K to plan Eutaw Place park improvements

BHCA in partnership with the Madison Park Improvement Association has received a $15,000 grant for a Green Streets Concept Plan from the Chesapeake Bay Trust to identify opportunities in three adjoining spaces:  1420 Eutaw Park, 1400-1500 Eutaw Place Median Park, and Mosher Plaza Park.

The grant supports improving stormwater practices,  increasing the tree canopy, identifying opportunities for native plantings, and to replace impervious surfaces with more permeable materials, thereby improving environmental quality and climate resiliency.

Bolton Hill, Madison Park and Marble Hill neighborhoods have been divided historically and socially by the Eutaw Place Median. We view the Chesapeake Bay Trust Green Streets Concept Plan as an opportunity to break down the divide.

Chosen from three responses to an RFP, the firm of Hord Coplan Macht will undertake the Concept Plan.
