We are still on cloud nine after yesterday’s magnificent turn out during the first annual Woodberry Hangout! We are so grateful that you came out, enjoyed the festivities and supported the WCA. This neighborhood is special because of you!
Thank you again to our sponsors who gave us legs to stand on, allowing us to throw this event. Gutierrez Studios, Preller Properties, Seawall Development, Sisson Street Auto Himmelrich Associates & Annonymous.
To our local business owners who donated AMAZING items for the raffle baskets- you are very generous! Those who had a table at the event took a gamble, not knowing what the turn out would be, and we appreciate that so much! A special shout out goes to the Baltimore Community Tool Library for existing and giving non profits an affordable option for event supplies!
We look forward to planning the 2018 Hangout and getting together again with everyone! In the meantime, stay tuned for updates from us and ways YOU can get more involved in what’s happening in Woodberry.

At a recent presentation by the Dept of Transportation we learn the following that will be occurring in the next 6-9 months:
41st from Druid Park Drive to the bridge will be repaved.
Our request(s) for Stop Signs at the bridge and at Parkdale/Druid Park Drive has been declined. This route is considered and arterial roadway.
The lanes across the bridge will become one lane East and one lane West. The current lanes next to the curb/sidewalks will become dedicated bike lanes. The bike lanes will be enhanced with raised, rumble strips to discourage vehicle traffic.
The roadbed from the bridge to the 41st light at DPD will be marked as a 2-way turn lane, hopefully easing turns into Channel 45, Sisson Auto and Girard Ave.
Although much community input from Woodberry, Channel 45 and Medfield voiced concern for pedestrian safety when attempting to cross 41st Street, the DOT representative indicated the recent traffic study found there was not enough pedestrian activity to warrant crosswalks or safety measures. We will continue to raise this issue as The Union Collective and the Pepsi campus projects advance.
