It is no secret that we have frequent problems related to dumping, trash accumulation, vacant properties, and rats. Driving home, if I see 311 violations that are tearing down our community, I am constantly submitting 311 requests and encourage everyone to do so as well. Ask yourself, are you doing everything you can do to restore hope in our neighborhoods? Are you a part of the solution or the problem? We ALL have to work together, regardless if you live in Armistead Gardens, Belair-Edison, Berea Eastside, Biddle Street, Broadway East, Middle East/Eager Park, Four by Four, Butchers Hill, CARE, Ellwood Park, Boceck & Madison-Eastend, McElderry Park, Milton-Montford, Orchard Ridge, Orangeville, Patterson Place, Upper Fells Point, or Washington Hill. #TogetherWEareDistrict13!

Keeping our community clean

Trash dumping needs to stop

Every week, I go out into different communities in District 13 that are frequent target areas for illegal dumping. Too often, they are messy situations, to say the least.

This is OUR community. We need to respect and protect our neighborhoods. Oftentimes, we do not hold each other accountable. If you see something — say something!

I encourage neighbors to organize community clean-ups and I’d love to lend a helping hand! Report trash/illegal dumping/dirty alley’s to 311, record the service request number that the operator or smart-phone app gives you, and pass it along to my office so that we can follow up w/ 311 to hold the city accountable.
