‘Keep Woodberry Historic’ Night Out
Wednesday, July 3, 2019, 5:30-7:00 pm
Waverly Brewing Company

Woodberry property owners are invited to join the Woodberry Community Association (WCA) and Baltimore Heritage at Waverly Brewing to learn how we can keep Woodberry historic, earned historic tax credits and have a say when it comes to demolition and development in the neighborhood. A designation of Historic District gives the community a say about the future and retention of our historic properties. The WCA has started the process to make Woodberry a local historic district with the Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation (CHAP). On Wednesday evening we will host a social specially for property owners to discuss how a designation can provide oversight and review against demolition and inappropriate development. Learn what it means to be in a historic district, the process for making it happen, and how you can get involved. Have a slice of pizza on us!

Woodberry Community Association and CHAP Meeting
Tuesday, June 11, 2019, 6:30 pm
Itineris Community Room, 2050 Rockrose Avenue

As Woodberry begins the process to become a Historic District within Baltimore City, it will be very important that we all become knowledgeable of the many benefits such as increased property values, tax incentives for renovations and lenient choices of building supplies and color. Please plan on attending this important meeting. Our guest speakers serve the Federal Hill Neighborhood Association and were instrumental in ushering in the Historic District designation that now protects that area. Mr. Fran (Francis) Landolf is currently the Chair of Preservation/Design Review for the Federal Hill Neighborhood Association and Mr. Walter Gallas is Historic Planner for CHAP. Both will share their experience, as well as provide a good Q & A session.
