    Baltimore Housing: Two Agencies, One Name


    The Housing Authority of Baltimore City (HABC) was established in 1937 to provide federally-funded public housing programs and related services for Baltimore’s low-income residents. The Agency currently serves over 40,000 residents in more than 14,000 housing units. HABC’s portfolio includes 18 family developments, 21 mixed population buildings and scattered sites throughout the City. Baltimore’s Housing Choice Voucher program provides an additional 12,000 families with rental housing subsidies each year.

    The Baltimore City Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) was created in 1968 to consolidate local community development efforts with housing and building code enforcement. With just over 500 employees, HCD strengthens City neighborhoods by attracting investors, developers and home buyers. To hold property owners accountable and keep neighborhoods safe, HCD monitors construction and building activity and enforces the City’s housing and building codes. The Department also provides a host of valuable community services.

    Brown Tide Kills Thousands of Baltimore Fish 6/6/07 article (WJZ/AP)


    State program director Charles Poukish says the fish kill is the result of an algae bloom or brown tide. He says the investigation began Sunday after at least 7,000 fish died.

    Mike Schuh reports recent warm water temperatures killed the algae and that depleted oxygen near the water’s surface.

    The fish include Atlantic menhaden, pumpkinseed sunfish, Atlantic croaker, American eel and white perch. Poukish says it’s a very strong stench in the Canton and harbor area from the dead fish.

    The city is cleaning up the fish but Poukish says the smell may linger for a couple of weeks.

    Even tho it’s a small kitchen, I feel I did the right thing to purchase cork when I had to replace the floor. I thought, if we don’t because it’s such a small difference, it’ll never happen.
    I got it at Lumber Liquidators. If I had known to get the Rembrant instead of the Miro or Van Gogh, I would have saved over $100. on the required Bona Kemi Traffic finish.
    There’s a “handyman” here in Frederick who did a great job of installing it for me. It looks nice and my dog loves to sleep on it.
