WWJD? Reader Submitted Blight: 1007-1013 N Caroline Street

Many thanks (again) to Reader Rusty for the pictures and info.

On a serious note — this is why I am a firm believer that churches, if they have the money to buy multiple properties, should also have to pay the property taxes on them.

Property Address:  1007-1013 N Caroline Street, Baltimore, MD 21205

Property Owner: East Baltimore Deliverance Evangelistic Center, Inc, 1001 N Caroline St, Baltimore, MD 21205

Resident Agent for Above: Christina VP Holtsclaw, 2312 Caves Road, Owings Mills, MD 21117

City Council District and Contact:  District 12, Carl Stokes

State Senator:  Verna Jones Rodwell

State Delegates:  Keith Haynes, Keiffer Mitchell Jr, Melvin Stukes

All three properties are in receivership — it’s a shame the church allowed these properties to remain in this condition, so close to a park.

    May I ask if listing the councilman, senator and delegates makes the process go any faster?  Do any of the papers pick up your posts?  I would love for these gov officials to be pointed out in the paper to make them pay attention to situations like this.

      Honestly, I’m not sure. I add it so people in that district will be able to contact their elected officials easily. The blog has attracted quite a bit of media attention since it started — one station that shall remain nameless actually used the blog in a story without giving any credit (ahem) but most stations and newspapers have been great about getting the word out regarding the city’s blight problem and the lack of accountability/enforcement.

      By the way, I removed all of your contact info from your comment — I wasn’t sure if you meant to add that, or if that was in there by mistake.
