Welcome to the Mount Vernon-Belvedere Association's website and to one of Baltimore's most historic and grandest neighborhoods!
A National Register Historic District, Mount Vernon encompasses the best of what city living has to offer. This solidly fashionable and lively neighborhood not only serves as Baltimore's cultural center, but is also home to world renowned mid-19th century architecture that provides a gracious urban living experience.
While Mount Vernon possesses some of Baltimore's most recognizable landmarks, it is also a charming and diverse neighborhood in which to reside, work as well as visit. Leisurely walk the streets of our neighborhood, stroll in the parks, discover the art collections of the Walter's Museum, dine at some of Baltimore's swankiest restaurants, and enjoy an evening at the symphony, opera or the theater.
The Mount Vernon community is dedicated to the preservation and restoration of our neighborhood's historic charm for all who live in, work in, or visit this special community.
So whether you live in the neighborhood, are visiting, or are considering a move, please check out our website and discover all the wonderful things this neighborhood has to offer!
Bikemore Baltimore's short term goal is to increase and improve bicycle infrastructure, policies, and awareness to create a safer, healthier, and more livable cycling city.
Advocate for bicycle infrastructure & pro-bicycle policy.
Promote everyday riding and increase overall bicycle ridership.Promote awareness of Baltimore Cyclists' Bill of Rights among all Baltimoreans.
Bikemore, through coordination with Baltimore's DOT, have proposed plans for bicycle lanes through Mount Vernon. One N/S route takes place on Cathedral and Maryland Avenue. One E/W route takes place on Madison and Biddle Street.
However, many questions have been raised about the program, its implementation, and lack of community input. One significant question is the loss of 75 parking spaces on Madison Street between Eutaw and Guilford Avenue. These spaces are largely made up of Residential Parking spaces for residents along Madison Street. There is also the loss of about 20 spaces on Maryland Ave along with rush hour parking restrictions, and 10 spaces on Cathedral Street.
At MVBA's general membership meeting on September 16, a brief discussion took place regarding the plans. MVBA will be providing additional opportunity for comments at future meetings.
