This information will not be shared with anyone, it is just to make sure that we can easily get in contact with you when it comes to do your pre-inspection and service renewal. This will be very appreciated and make this process go more smoothly. Please let us know if you have any questions.
Starting on Monday, May 16, we will be working on Randall Street, Marshall Street, Covington Street, and Webster Street to install the gas main. Service renewals will start on or around July 12 on E. Randall Street at Marshall Street. You will be contacted by door hangers. To schedule the exact date, please respond to the number left on the hanger.

The Mayor’s Office of Economic & Neighborhood Development is working with the Baltimore Local Development Council (LDC), various City agencies and our State Representatives to create a South Baltimore Gateway Community Benefits District (CBD), which will oversee enhanced services to neighborhoods within South Baltimore’s “Casino Impact Area” (CIA).
Funding for the district will come from “Local Impact Grant” (LIG) funds – a portion of casino revenues that the State of Maryland directs to improve communities in the CIA, also known as the “South Baltimore Gateway.”
In order to gather input on priorities, the City and LDC will hold three meetings for community residents in April 2016, to engage residents from each of three “sectors” below”:
East – Federal Hill, Otterbein, Port Covington, Riverside, Sharp-Leadenhall, South Baltimore, Spring Garden Industrial Area (April 11, 2016, 6-8:30 PM Digital Harbor HS)

South – Cherry Hill, Lakeland, Mount Winans, Saint Paul, Westport (April 9, 2016, 9:30AM-12:00PM, Arundel Elementary & Middle School)

Hello friends & neighbors of Riverside!
It’s that time of year again – the 2015 South Baltimore Softball Classic is right around the corner and Team Riverside is actively seeking players for this year’s squad. In two short years, Riverside has developed the reputation as being the team to beat – we were runner up in 2013 and South Baltimore Softball Classic Champions in 2014. The pressure is on for us to reclaim the crown and hold bragging rights over the South Baltimore Peninsula for another full year.
The South Baltimore Softball Classic is a one day Co-ed Softball Tournament that is scheduled to occur on Saturday August 29th at Swann Park. The tournament is a great opportunity to bond with fellow neighbors from Riverside and the adjacent neighborhoods that combine to make South Baltimore one of the most desirable communities in the region.by admin
