Officials, Church Plan to Rebuild Burned Community Center

Posted:

BALTIMORE (AP) - An eastern Baltimore church and developers say they'll start rebuilding a senior housing center destroyed during rioting.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and Sens. Barbara Mikulski and Ben Cardin joined members of Southern Baptist Church on Monday to announce the rebuilding of the Mary Harvin Center. The center was about 45 percent complete when it was destroyed by fire during riots last week. Officials say the building will open next year with 61 units of affordable senior housing with counseling and job training space.

Rawlings-Blake says this is just one of the city's first rebuilding stories. She says the city will be "better than where we were."

Mikulski says officials will work for summer jobs and after-school programs and then for bigger efforts like more housing and criminal justice reform.
