a sustainable future
The Greater Baybrook Vision and Action Plan looks towards a future where the peninsula’s streets are free of crime and danger for local residents. A safer Baybrook, where residents feel comfortable walking their streets, will attract new neighbors and strengthen the peninsula communities
There is power within the bountiful natural resources present in Greater Baybrook. Existing green spaces will provide gathering spaces for local residents, attract new visitors to the peninsula, and act as anchors for the emerging environmental sustainability movement in the area. Emphasizing programming and usage of area parks will create a location for peninsula activities and community building.
ABOUT SPRUCE UP
Through the generous support from the State of Maryland’s Department of Housing and Community Development, the Greater Baybrook Alliance’s Community Spruce-Up Grant program provides funding to groups, individuals and associations in the neighborhoods of Brooklyn, Curtis Bay, and Brooklyn Park in the amount of $5,000 to $25,000.
The goal of this grant program to provide matching resources for mid- to large-scale community improvement projects such as murals, neighborhood signage, and school greening projects in order to develop neighborhood-driven, highly visible quality of life improvements that promote strong community building.
