Ridgely’s Record

February Community Meeting

Our February community meeting will be on Wednesday, February 7th at 7:00 pm on the second floor of Pickles Pub. We're thrilled to welcome Liz Cornish, enhanced services director at the South Baltimore Gateway Partnership, who will share exciting updates on the Conway Park improvement plans. 

We will also have a chance to meet and ask questions of Phylicia Porter, the 10th District City Councilwoman. Last fall, Mayor Scott released a redistricting plan that will move Ridgely’s Delight from the 11th councilmanic district to Ms. Porter’s. 

Mark your calendars. We can't wait to see you there.

If you are unable to attend the meeting in person, you can join us online. Login details and the agenda will be posted on Ridgely’s website.
