Park. Our annual community festival will

With spring comes the greening season and the weed season.   Our Green Team is working hard to remove weeds throughout Midtown.  We are applying a non-toxic organic weed killer called EcoSMART. It is considered child and pet safe.   Further information is available at http://www.ecosmart.com/products/weed-and-grass-killer/

Citizens on Patrol
Now that we are enjoying pleasant spring weather, we need more volunteers for our citizens on patrol groups.  Whether you prefer to walk or would like to learn to use one of our Segway vehicles, we need you with us one or more evenings a week.  To sign up contact Midtown Public Safety Coordinator James Cappuccino at 410 528-1512 extension 215, or email Jim at Safety@midtowncommunity.org .

Let's Talk: Respond to the 2011 Citizen Survey!

Through the end of May, the City of Baltimore is surveying residents to get your perspectives about the satisfaction with City services. City departments use survey results to help them deliver services more effectively. A diverse cross-section of approximately 1,800 randomly selected residents will complete a telephone survey, which is being conducted by the University of Baltimore's Schaefer Center.

If you are contacted to participate in the survey, please take the few minutes necessary to provide your honest opinions about how we're doing in Baltimore. There's a separate, online survey available too this year at www.baltimorecity.gov/citizensurvey. Thank you for your help in making our city better!
