It’s happening! On October 8, the Commission on Historical and Architectural Preservation (CHAP) will be holding the first hearing on establishing a Woodberry Local Historic District.
Baltimore Heritage’s Executive Director, Johns Hopkins, will join others in testifying at the hearing in support of the additional designation.
Woodberry holds an indelible place in Baltimore’s history and needs to be protected for current and future generations. While already designated as a National Register Historic District, that primarily honorary designation offers very little protection from thoughtless demolition and development. By designating Woodberry as a CHAP District, we can help safeguard the important historic fabric in this neighborhood.
You can also attend the hearing in person October 8, 2019 at 2 p.m. (Plan to arrive by 1:45). Location: 417 East Fayette Street, Eighth Floor, Baltimore, MD 21202. The more supporters we have in the room the better our chances!
