Growing Green Competition: Vacant Lots Transformed

Is there a vacant lot in your community? Here’s your chance to fix it up!

The Baltimore City Mayor’s Office, in partnership with the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the Chesapeake Bay Trust, is holding the Baltimore Growing Green Design Competition to transform vacant lots in Baltimore City. The competition is a part of Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s Growing Green Initiative.

Community groups and design firms are encouraged to form partnerships and submit their design to transform a vacant lot by August 15. The Green Pattern Book provides background information, potential ideas, and examples of successful vacant lot transformations.

Participants are strongly encouraged to choose a lot from the pre-approved list. If you have a lot in mind that is not pre-approved, you must submit your alternative suggestion by July 1.

Choose from one of these mandatory workshops to learn more.  At least one team member must attend, but you need not have decided on partners.
