June Street Sweeping Dates

Trash is picked up every Wednesday.
Recycling is picked up every Friday.

Residential parking permit renewal

Area 5 residential parking decals and guest passes, while originally scheduled to be renewed in June, will remain in effect until further notice.  The Parking Authority of Baltimore City (PABC)  will notify us when they are to be renewed.

Because our neighborhood is a pilot site for the new Virtual Parking Permit (VPP) program, when we do renew our permits and guest passes, we will do so online and not receive paper decals and guest passes.  Parking enforcement officers will have equipment that allows them to read tag numbers as they come through the neighborhood to ensure that a vehicle is registered for a virtual permit or virtual guest pass.

Prior to permit renewal you will receive a detailed explanation of VPP from PABC.  You can contact Deb O’Neill, who is a member of the RDA Parking Committee, at doneill1952@comcast.net if you have questions.

Household hazardous waste drop-off

Baltimore City Department of Public Works Acting Director Matthew W. Garbark has announced that the household hazardous waste drop-off event will be on Friday and Saturday, June 5 and 6.  The event will be held from 9:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. on both days at the Sisson Street Drop-Off Center, located at 2840 Sisson Street.

Don’t forget to complete the 2020 Census

Responding to the census is not only your civic duty; it also affects the amount of funding our community receives, how our community plans for the future, and our representation in government. Specifically, data from the 2020 Census are used to:

  • Ensure public services and funding for schools, hospitals, and fire departments.
  • Plan new homes and businesses and improve neighborhoods.
  • Determine how many seats your state is allocatedin the House of Representatives.
