The Market Center Community Development Corporation (MCCDC) wants YOU to partner with us to create a vision and strategic plan for Market Center. This plan aims to be beneficial to all who live, work, create, own businesses and properties, attend school, and worship in, and visit Market Center. You can now provide feedback to the Market Center Strategic Revitalization Plan on-line:

The Market Center Community Development Corporation (MCCDC), a nonprofit formed in 2017, is facilitating the process. MCCDC’s mission is to make investments to catalyze a healthy, dynamic, and diverse community in Market Center, encourage community development, and galvanize the renaissance of Baltimore’s historic retail core.

MCCDC invites everyone who has a stake in Market Center to participate in this process. MCCDC has begun outreach to specific stakeholders to make sure they are aware of and request their support for the process. Going forward, the process will include:

  • Public input on the plan’s visions, goals, and implementation strategy from individuals and/or organizations who do not have a formal role in the planning process, will be collected through various mechanisms:
    • Email, website communications;
    • Meetings with community organizations and other interest groups; and
    • Small group discussions for residents, artists, business owners, property owners, developers, students, and employees.
  • An Advisory Committee will provide broad oversight and substantive input from representatives of key institutions, organizations, groups, and agencies, intended to ensure that they are aware of and support the plan’s vision, goals, and implementation plan. Please note that we are open to adding more Advisory Committee members. To serve on the Advisory Committee, you must be willing to commit time to meetings and reviewing documents between meetings. If you are interested in serving on the Advisory Committee, contact Kristen Mitchell at 443-478-3014.
  • Subcommittees will provide more detailed input from Working Group members and other interested parties on key topics.
