City Center Bits & Bites Newsletter (February 2020)

Welcome to the first issue of City Center Bits & Bites, CCRA’s monthly e-newsletter. CCRA is proud of our growing efforts to build community, engage stakeholders and advocate for Baltimore’s fastest growing residential neighborhood – City Center!

2020 is shaping up to be a great year for our neighborhood, with many new developments planned or underway – including this week’s groundbreaking for the new Lexington Market — and an ever-increasing presence from the residents making City Center their home.

Be sure to open the attached newsletter and read on to see what CCRA has been up to and some of what we have planned for the first part of the new year.

This Valentine’s Day, show your love for the Heart of Baltimore and join the City Center Residents Association (CCRA).

Together we build community, engage stakeholders, advocate for residents and promote Baltimore’s City Center as a great place to live and work. Last year alone, CCRA organized over two dozen social, informational and service events including monthly happy hours, community clean-ups, our 3rd Annual Night at the Yard and the first Elected Officials Forum with legislators representing our neighborhood in Annapolis.

We are currently planning several exciting activities for 2020, including a mayoral candidates forum, special CCRA nights at arts & entertainment venuesdine-arounds at neighborhood restaurants and new community service projects — in addition to the always-fun CCRA Happy Hours!

CCRA members will also receive exclusive discounts at a variety of City Center businesses and cultural events including David & Dad’s Cafe, Everyman Theatre and Let’s Go Fitness. More to come so watch this space!
