WEST IIA Community Conversation

West IIA Overview Map
The West Impact Investment Area Community Conversation took place on Tuesday, August 23, 2022, at the Shake and Bake Family Fun Center, 1601 Pennsylvania Avenue
Baltimore, MD 21217.


The neighborhoods within the West Impact Investment Area have experienced a significant resurgence in recent years.  Community-centric planning combined with strong community organizations and an increased focus from City and State partners has helped to leverage investment and guide strategies that will help the area to continue to grow.  Now is the time to double down and build on the many assets in Penn North, Druid Heights, and Upton.   


West IIA Implementation Strategy  - Implementation Strategy is a document which provides a recommended set of actions and investments which the City and community partners will implement.

West IIA Project Tracker This West IIA Project Tracker is connected and updated live from Google Sheets and managed by the DHCD representatives for each neighborhood.  The tracker includes development projects happening in the West Impact Investment area.
