$20M Lexington Market renovation will help bring 10K new families: Mayor Rawlings-Blake

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.

Full Disclosure: Technically Baltimore cofounder Brian James Kirk participated in the event.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake wants to convince 10,000 new families to move into Baltimore city by 2020.  It’s an ambitious feat given that Baltimore achieved a net gain in population of about 1,000 in 2012, the first time in years U.S. Census estimates had shown the city gaining people.

The Baltimore Business Journal reports:

Rawlings-Blake headlined a morning discussion, called Redefining Rust Belt, including participants from Baltimore, Cleveland, Philadelphia and Detroit. Her speech highlighted ways Baltimore can attract 10,000 new families by 2020, which include a $20 to $25 million renovation of Lexington Market.

With a few improvements — such as the Lexington Market project — Rawlings-Blake said Baltimore could be poised to attract new residents from places like Washington, D.C.

Her comments were part of an event organized by the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia.
