Broken furniture, old rugs and tree limbs are fine. Please do not dispose of any building materials. No lumber, drywall, siding, roofing material, etc. Empty or dried up latex paint cans are ok, but not oil-based paint. No electronics, large appliances or hazardous material. Thanks in advance for helping keep our neighborhood clean.

Virtual Permit Parking (VPP) is here

Last call to sign up for VPP in Ridgely’s Delight! On November 1st, the neighborhood switches over to virtual residential parking permits. With this program in effect, you will no longer have paper decals and guest passes.  Instead, enforcement officers will use license plate readers that coordinate with the VPP database to determine who has the proper credentials to park in our residential parking spaces.

To obtain your virtual permit(s) and guest pass, you have to create a new VPP account with the Parking Authority and submit the requisite documents. This can all be done online. Visit https://pabc.myparkinginfo.com/

Videos are available online showing you how to create a new account, purchase permits and schedule visitor’s permits.

All home improvement renovation work requires a Baltimore City permit. Additionally, Ridgely’s Delight is a historic neighborhood in a CHAP district and exterior work on your home requires CHAP approval prior to the start of any renovation.
