It is. There are reasons for concern though that are mentioned in the article. I'm cautiously optimistic.

It could be.   But I wanna see the part where they gotta work with people in the neighborhoods to make sure it's not just a grab for developers to screw things up, take the money, and run...

Does the Arena qualify as a decaying structure?  Maybe we can use some of the money to tear it down?

$480 million would build a sweet new arena. Why don't we just lock criminals in there when there aren't events being held?

They could work the concession stands during events, too. Just don't let them run the register.

What a d bag. The campaign should be, "Move to Baltimore so you don't have to live in the same city as Fred Kunkle."

 

Kunkle. What a terrible name. I bet a lot of his hostility comes from that name.

I would rather live in Baltimore than DC 100 times out of 100 for various reasons.

Rodricks: Arabbers cleared of charges, but their horses are gone

 

It's not for nostalgia that I feel strongly that the arabber tradition continue, though it's certainly one of the cool things about Baltimore. It's because arabbing presents a challenge that smart people ought to embrace.

 

Saving this 19th-century tradition in the 21st century calls to civic-minded and industrious people — the arabbers, Maryland horse people, retail and marketing specialists, preservationists, nutritionists and public health experts, arts and tourism boosters — to come up with a successful business plan for horse-drawn produce sales in the city.

This is interesting - engineering advances have dropped the estimated cost of fixing the Howard Street train tunnel from as high as $3B to only $425M.  They want to raise the height of the tunnel by 1.5 feet to allow double decker freight cars to pass through, which would supposedly be great news for the port of Baltimore, and might also reduce truck traffic on I-95.
