FOGFLP has learned of two sewer construction projects (SC291 and 977) that are starting in the Gwynns Falls river bank and flood plain. As advocates for the park, we understand the necessity of these projects but our goal is to limit the damage. FOGLFP was not included in the planning of these projects. We have since had discussions with Baltimore City's Department of Public Works (DPW) and Recreation and Parks for coordination and participation in the future. We are asking to be included in the planning so as to ensure there are reasonable safeguards to protect the park when it comes to things like setting the limits of disturbance (LOD), tree removal, erosion control, and reforestation.
Where is the park?
On the western edge of Baltimore, right where Interstate 70 terminates.
