BALTIMORE - Baltimore's Oliver neighborhood was once known for it's abandoned rowhomes, crime-ridden streets, drugs, and violence. But things there are turning around.
Through a program called "Operation Oliver," the East Baltimore neighborhood is undergoing a major revitalization. Volunteers are rehabbing homes and turning abandoned lots into places for kids and families to play.
On Monday night, the Mayor joined representatives from the program to celebrate the opening of the neighborhood's housing sales center on North Bond Street.
The new center will serve as the hub for all of the project's community related services.
