Link Roundup

Maryland’s lead paint poisoning cases in children continues to decline, but current law needs to be reworked.

Old-school holdouts…every neighborhood has some, even in NYC. I sometimes prefer the ones in my neighborhood, over the new-ish neighbors.  Other times, not so much.

Vacants as a blank canvas — WHY are we not doing this, Baltimore artists???  If anyone’s interested, please contact me. I’m in!

Speaking of art and blight, if you’re expecting the city government to fix this mess, forget it — artists, maybe.  City government, no.

Baltimore City government, Pittsburgh (like so many other cities) is again ahead of you…even when it comes to ways to deal with blighted homes.

Another city considers a vacant structure tax – when is Baltimore going to start using this common-sense approach?

Pottstown, PA has a slumlord watch!  The number is growing — meet the new addition to the family…say hello to the Golden Cockroach.

    Thanks Baltimore Slumlord Watch !! We appreciate the plug and we’ll happily do the same for you. We’d like to share ideas with all the watch’s and keep current with what is working and what is not.

    We have protested and will be doing so again. We are currently investigating the slum of a high profile politician. Should be interesting.
