The BHCA board of directors voted at its March meeting in favor of a resolution that clarifies the reasons behind Bolton Hill’s longstanding position against having more row houses in the neighborhood converted into multi-unit properties.
In March 2020, the attorney and architect representing the New York-based investors who own 1700 Eutaw Place—the large and longtime vacant apartment building just to the north of Eutaw-Marshburn Elementary School—introduced plans to renovate the building.
The City Department of Planning hosted a “public information” meeting Feb. 10 about a bill (#21-0009) in the city council that affects most row houses in Bolton Hill and in other neighborhoods with large single-unit residential properties.
You may have seen the last enormous tractor-trailer grumble its way up John Street, hoping to cut through to I-83 from Howard Avenue. Or maybe not. With luck, the Santas at the city’s DOT will deliver a solution before the year (or at least the winter) is over.
A bill now pending before the city council would change residential zoning to eliminate off-street parking space requirements when owners of single-family residences decide to cut them up into two or more apartments.
Several Bolton Hill residents work every year to beautify and improve our neighborhood. Some of them work on a specific project or effort that merits special recognition, and at this year’s virtual BHCA membership meeting, they were recognized.
