Citizens on Patrol (COP) Walk
The Fells Prospect's citizens on patrol (COP) walk will be on Wed., November 20 (instead of the usual 4th Wednesday each month). Talk one-on-one with law enforcement and often a state's attorney office representative will join, too. We'll meet on the corner of S. Chester and Pratt Street just before 7:30 pm.
Have ideas about how to get more people to participate. Contact COP organizer, Debbie Ritter, to get involved: firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-675-0273.
Fells Prospect, including parts of Baltimore neighborhoods Upper Fells Point and west Canton, is nestled between Fells Point, Butchers Hill and Canton. The area is bordered by Broadway to the west, Patterson Park to the east, Pratt Street to the north and Eastern Avenue to the south. A portion of the neighborhood extends to the water’s edge from Washington Street to Montford Avenue. See a map.

Outcome of Patterson Park Working Group
Friends of Patterson Park has announced that they have received a grant from the Abell Foundation, which, in conjunction with funds from the Recreation & Parks Department, will fund the installation of gates at Luzerne Ave. and Baltimore St. near the Rec Center, and at Linwood Ave., south of the dog park. The gates are a direct outcome of the plan adopted by the Patterson Park Working Group and is expected to reduce unauthorized driving in the park.
The Working Group was formed in reaction to the outcry caused by Recreation & Parks and Health Departments' proposal to build parking for 96 cars in the Park. For details, the Friends of Patterson Park site and in articles by the Baltimore Guide.
Cut the Crap Baltimore
Goal: Improve the quality of pedestrian and community life in the Fells Prospect area by raising the standard for proper disposal of dog feces by dog owners.
Grossed out by dog poop on the street? FPCA has received a grant from the Chesapeake Bay Trust to enlist responsible dog owners to pressure people who don't pick up after their dogs. Look for us at events throughout September.
We've already had 416 people pledge to carry an extra dog bag with them and to ask, "Do you need a bag?" if they see someone who isn't picking up. We'll also be holding a sign contest for "on the ground" education.
- Trash cans should not be stored on the sidewalk in front of the building.
- Please try to prevent recycle items from blowing away (stack heavier items on top, wedge papers in, etc.
To join the more than 600 people already on Nextdoor, please email Jan Angevine - email@example.com with your name, home address, and email.
Need Help Delivering the FPCA Newsletter
We've had some resignations and need people to help with the following blocks. It only takes 15 minutes a month and it's a huge help!
Fells Prospect Business Map
The association has launched a map of businesses in
the neighborhood as a way to thank and show support
for the people who help make it a vibrant community.
You may be as surprised as we were with the number
and variety. In fact, you'll find that you can meet many
of your shopping needs within a short walk. If you did
not receive a copy with your newsletter, look for copies of the map at local
businesses, or view it online.
Monthly FPCA meetings
Monthly meetings are a great chance to meet your neighbors, find out what's going on with traffic, building, nuisance bars, etc., as well as provide a chance to learn about new topics. January's meeting, for example, included a presentation on how to fight your tax assessment. Throughout the 2011 election, candidates from all office levels came to speak, allowing residents to voice their concerns and meet the potential representatives in person. So come to the next meeting--it's an easy way to get involved.
AND Join us on Nextdoor, a private, social network for Fells Prospect residents. Updates on community events, free & for sale items, and hyper-local discussions.
