Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has"

Government is a slow and tedious process. While it often includes citizen and neighborhood involvement, non-governmental, private organizations have created movements and interesting groups which can create positive change in our cities and towns.

I am fascinated by the way groups are created and how they influence public decision making. This blog merely recognizes them and forwards the description of these groups from their own websites.

Waterfront Partnership

Location: Baltimore, MD

Website: www.waterfrontpartnership.org

Waterfront Partnership of Baltimore Inc. is proud to serve as our Harbor’s chief advocate, promoter, and steward. In a 2003 Report produced by the Greater Baltimore Committee, a call to action was issued in order to preserve the precious jewel we so often take for granted.

Citing its fragility, the GBC issued a clarion call for renewed attention to our Harbor. Property and business owners, attractions and other waterfront interests responded immediately to the GBC’s call to action.

Working in partnership with the City, by the fall of 2005 the Waterfront Partnership of Baltimore, Inc. was created to manage, promote and advocate on behalf of the waterfront. Currently bounded by the Rusty Scupper on the south and extending round the harbor to Bond Street Wharf.

The Partnership’s Clean, Safe, Hospitality, and Green Teams have worked daily to ensure Baltimore’s Waterfront is clean, friendly and beautiful.
