Alley reclaimed as communal social / green space through residents work with Baltimore stakeholders and Community Greens initiative of Ashoka, a citizen sector organization. Made possible under the City's new Gating and Greening Alleys Ordinance. http://www.ci.baltimore.md.us/government/dpw/alleygating.php

These shared spaces give residents the ability to create a safer environment in which to live. As they reclaim and improve the alley behind their homes they should see a reduction in the amount of dumping, vandalism, and crime that occurs in their alleyway. As the alley improves, so should the value of the abutting homes. As an added plus, these alley greens - once beautified with planters, trees, or grass - will, of course, help the environment and the Chesapeake Bay by cleaning the air, creating microhabitats for birds and insects, reducing storm water runoff, keeping trash out of the bay, and decreasing the urban heat island effect.

The key to the success of a project like this is having a real community effort where all of the neighbors sharing the space decide on what is to be installed and each of them takes a part in the maintenance of the space. Longevity.
