Ridgely’s Record

No August community meeting

There is no community meeting scheduled for this month. Enjoy the summer break.

National Night Out pot luck picnic

Always a good time, the National Night Out is an annual event taking place this year on Tuesday, August 3, from 6 pm – 9 pm, in Conway Park.

National Night Out encourages people to get outside to meet their neighbors and interact with police and fire fighters. The event is meant to strengthen neighborhood spirit and build partnerships in an informal setting.

Bring the roommates, the kids or just yourself and enjoy an evening of socializing. The Ridgely’s Delight Association will be providing hot dogs, burgers and veggie options and we ask neighbors to bring a side dish or dessert to share. BYOB.

Dogs are ok, but must be kept on a leash. If you have questions, please email sharon@reuter.net or lindahansenfritz@comcast.net.

New parking permits coming soon

This fall, the Parking Authority of Baltimore City (PABC) will be initiating a pilot program in Ridgely’s to switch from paper parking decals and guest passes to virtual permits (VPP or Virtual Permit Parking). Please be on the lookout for mailings from the Parking Authority of Baltimore City (PABC) with more information on this pilot. And you can find more information about VPP at https://parking.baltimorecity.gov/residential-parking/neighborhoods/ridgley.
