NDC Project # 2390
Community Design Works
Completed in 2015.
In 2015, the Cherry Hill Development Corporation (CHDC) requested for the Neighborhood Design Center to assist with creating a community investment strategy to guide public and private investment in their neighborhood. They were hoping to enact changes in their built environment that address numerous issues and increase the connections between the neighborhood and their schools. The plan paralleled the investment under Baltimore City Schools’ 21st Century Buildings Plan that affects Cherry Hill Elementary/Middle School, Arundel Elementary/Middle School, and Dr. Carter Godwin Woodson Elementary/Middle School. NDC volunteers and staff met regularly with a core stakeholder group convened by Cherry Hill CDC. Lead Designer was Davin Hong of Living Design Lab, who is now working on the KIPP Academy Vision Plan.CHERRY HILL REPORT_smaller
