  • City plans to demolish Perkins Homes, neighbors just finding out (UPDATED)

    City plans to demolish Perkins Homes, neighbors just finding out (UPDATED)
    UPDATE: City Paper has heard from several readers concerned about such things as whether a "one-for-one replacement policy" is built into the Perkins plan; when their grandmother might be forced to move; and the nature of the Open Society Institute's involvement—as the boss of the Baltimore OSI office emailed yesterday to say that her organization had "no engagement" with Baltimore Housing on the Perkins plan. To clarify: We don't know if the plan will include a one-for-one replacement of the units, though we have heard from people at the meeting that the plan is to increase density there. The process appears to be in its early stages and, again, the money to do all this is not in place. It's clearly going to be years before anything gets knocked down (and anyone's grandma is forced out), if ever. Here is what Diana Morris, director of Open Society Institute-Baltimore, wrote in an email last night regarding OSI's role:
