The mayor has approved a proposed city police redistricting map that will transfer Bolton Hill from the BPD Central District, which stretches south from the neighborhood and includes most of the Midtown benefits district and Downtown/Inner Harbor, to the BPD Western District.
With his term-limited administration winding down, Gov Larry Hogan (R) has made the city an offer it probably should refuse: take possession of the aging State Center 28-acre campus once it is emptied out of all state workers.
“My car and I just got attacked by squeegee kids after I politely declined their services when pulling into exit six off JFX coming home, so they surrounded my car and lifted up my windshield wipers and sprayed the car down while banging on my glass with their squeegees and cussing me out. I already called the police to inform them…. I can only imagine how I would feel if I had kids or other passengers in my car and how terrifying it would be. These people are menaces and must be stopped firmly or things could end very badly the next time.”
In last month’s Bulletin a local breakdown of the 2020 national census showed that Bolton Hill and most other midtown neighborhoods were growing or holding steady even as the city lost nearly six percent of its population.
Bolton Hill Community Association’s board has voted to oppose the fast-track effort by Baltimore City Public Schools to close Eutaw-Marshburn Elementary School on Bolton Hill’s western border at the end of this school year, June 15.
