Baltimore City officials announce the formation of a plan utilizing eight area institutions, which they believe will help provide economic growth and opportunity for area residents.
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake dubbed the initiative the Baltimore City Anchor Plan which she projects will provide economic growth, increase City population, and create jobs.
Through the plan, anchor institutions and the City will work together to address priorities including public safety, local hiring, local purchasing, and quality of life.
Those institutions included in the plan are:
- Bon Secours Hospital,
- Coppin State University,
- Johns Hopkins University,
- Loyola University,
- Maryland Institute of Art,
- Morgan State University,
- Notre Dame of Maryland,
- University of Baltimore.
"We recognize that Baltimore's anchor institutions play a significant role in the economic vitality of our City; but now it is imperative to increase collaboration and communication, as well as leverage and align resources to ensure that our communities are growing." said Rawlings-Blake in a statement.
