The South Baltimore Gateway Partnership is pleased to share its progress and report on its activity during the third quarter of Fiscal Year 2018. This quarterly report also serves as an update to the FY18 South Baltimore Gateway Partnership Financial Plan.
During the past quarter, SBGP has continued to achieve great things. SBGP continued managing the Community Grants awarded in the first quarter and kicked off its second cycle of Community Grants during the third quarter. A comprehensive Implementation Plan for improvements to parks, recreation centers and public spaces across the South Baltimore Gateway District was completed, and SBGP announced innovative partnerships with the Ripken Foundation and KaBOOM! to build ballfields and playgrounds. SBGP also made its first major allocation to a Transformational Project, conditionally committing up to $2.2 million to the construction of the Middle Branch Fitness and Wellness Center at Cherry Hill.
