Mondawmin Crossings - gathering on Auchentoroly Terrace

Description

Greater Mondawmin is a collection of strong neighborhoods sharing an array of educational, recreational, and shopping opportunities. Unfortunately, residents are unable to safely walk or bike to our local amenities due to streetscape barriers like the dangerous highways that ring Druid Hill Park and Mondawmin Mall. Mondawmin Crossings was an interactive walking tour exploring neighborhood history and opportunities for improving how local residents connect with our many valuable community places. Along the way, residents and visitors heard local local leaders and stakeholders talk about our unique neighborhood assets and potentials, including Druid Hill Park, Parks & People, Metro Heights, and Mondawmin Mall. Featured speakers included Baltimore City 7th District Councilman Leon Pinkett, the New Auchentoroly Terrace Association President Ms. Barbara Anderson-Dandy, Mondawmin Neighborhood Improvement Association President Ms. Sandra Almond Cooper, Parks & People Project Manager Laura Connelly, Creative Entrepreneur Nell Dominic, Historic Preservationist Jackson Gilman-Forlini, and Baltimore Greenway Trails Coalition Organizer Jim Brown. The tour created opportunities for all participants to talk about places and moments they consider meaningful. Comments from the tour were shared with the companies, organizations, and city agencies that are helping shape a bright future of Greater Mondawmin.
