There are organizations working to make this vision a reality, including the Greater Baltimore Committee, Greater Baltimore Economic Alliance and Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance to name a few. There are also some hopeful signs that things are moving in the right direction. The Baltimore Regional Neighborhood Initiative (BRNI), for example, is leveraging strategic investment into local housing and business endeavors. Recognizing that the challenges and opportunities of community revitalization do not stop at a city or county boarder, BRNI is helping to grow the tax base and enhance quality of life in Baltimore City and the "inner Baltimore Beltway" communities of Baltimore and Anne Arundel counties. Moreover, there was widespread regional support for the much-needed legislation that is now paving the way for nearly $1 billion in funding for Baltimore City's public schools system. This funding will lead to the new construction or major renovation of as many as 30 Baltimore schools.
