It’s Home Tour Time!

September 24 marks the date of the 2016 Patterson Park Home Tour. This year we’ll feature The West and North Sectors, but we will be sure to hightlight the river alley, Library Square, the Audubon Garden and Mural, and have a Stay for the Day sheet for people to explore our neighborhood after the tour. The tour runs from 11 am to 4:00 pm (last ticket sold at 3:00). Great opportunity to see how some of your neighbors make their home in the Park. Buy tickets to the tour here  (and join or renew your PPNA Membership! We have great membership incentives, including a Members Cocktail Party coming soon!).

Want to be part of the tour, or know someone who’s home you think would be a great addition to our tour? Contact us. We’ve got a great group of homes, but can always use more.

Introducing the Patterson Park Clean City Guide

The PPNA is pleased to introduce the Patterson Park Clean City Guide. This guide gives you, the community activist, a “how to” guide for trash removal, recycling, and rat prevention. Neighbors often do not know how to navigate the City’s 311 system for trash and rats and how to find resources to organize neighbors for a cleaner, greener block. This guide outlines how use the 311 system, get rid of rats, locate citizen drop off centers, recycle, what fines and violations exist, responsibilities for landlords and businesses, and find resources. Download a copy (English and Spanish), or contact the PPNA for availability of printed copies to share.

The Patterson Park Clean City Guide was led by the Patterson Park Neighborhood Greening Partnership Chaired by Terresa Carter, the PPNA West Sector Vice President held by Sadie Drescher, the Greening Coordinator held by Kim Wiggins, Banner Neighborhoods, Anthony Newman, and Molly Lasater from JHBSPH. Funding was provided by a grant from the Baltimore Community Foundation and the Chesapeake Bay Trust. Bridget Parlato with Full Circuit Studio/Baltimore Trash Talk provided content guidance and graphic design and Catalina Rodriguez-Lima with the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant and Multicultural Affairs provided the Spanish translation.
