Awaited community meeting with 6th & Garfield developers announced

Well, the details came in 3 separate association emails with some confusion about time and day, but Salemtown Neighbors Neighborhood Association announced a community meeting with the development team of 6th and Garfield to finally introduce detailed sketches of their planned townhouses. While the developers expressed uncertainty about the design of the project at the first meeting, they pledged that they would have more community meetings to listen to feedback.

The next meeting is scheduled for 5:30, Thursday, March 15 at the Morgan Park Community Center. You can read more background on the 6th and Garfield rezoning request and previous community meeting here and here and here.

Association news about the actual details on this development have been plagued by misinformation. Your may remember that an original SNNA email characterized the 6th and Garfield development as "Baltimore Brownstones". On follow-up the developer denied in a first community meeting that he ever so characterized the build. So, I was not surprised that today's SNNA announcement was also fumbled.

  1. The owner of the house that abuts the alley mentioned to me that he would be willing to talk about selling his investment property to assist this development. To date, he has not been contacted.
