Belair Road Revitalization Project - Small Grants Awarded!
The Grant Allocation Committe has awarded the following grants:

Overlea Beautification Fall 2013 • Submitted By Overlea Community Association
The grant will utilize the funding to purchase street flower pots. These will be placed in front of businesses. The flowers and shrubbery will be maintained by local businesses. Beautifying this portion of corridor will attract future new businesses and customers to this portion of the Belair Road Commercial Corridor.

Belair Road Revitalization Project Mural • Submitted by Glenham-Belhar Community Association
The grant will utilize fund to paint a large "garden mural" near the Gardenville sign near the intersection of Frankford Avenue & Belair Road. The community has identified both a local artist to lead the project and a vendor who will donate the paint. The mural will have a positive impact on the Belair Road Commercial Corridor branding effort as it will beautify a location within the center of the Gardenville node near the Baltimore International Academy.

Belair Road Curbside Flower Plants • Submitted by Cedmont Community Improvement Association
This grant would fund a pilot model flower planter on Belair Road with the intent of kick starting future sponsored flower planters being placed on Belair Road that would create visual link throughout the business district.

St. Anthony of Padua, St. Dominic and Most Precious Blood Churches' Community Advocacy Committee
The grant will be used to convene one community forum at St. Anthony’s Parish, inviting all interested community members to express their vision for the Belair Road corridor.

A second round of small grants is planned for 2014.

Your Fire Department Needs Your Help!
The firehouse was built in 1955 and occupied in 1957 with no major renovations to date. It was originally built for two companies (Engine 54 and Truck Company #30) and three shifts. Three companies (Squad#54, Truck Company #30 and Medic Unit #13) and four shifts are currently in operation with 53 members assigned to this firehouse.  Plans are in the works to renovate the kitchen and upgrade the bunk and locker room areas. The firehouse, like many city firehouses, have had difficulty keeping up with the times.  Budget constraints have been a driving force in only fixing priority items and not upgrading other items such as locker rooms etc. (View a few photos.)
