The seat became vacant when Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake selected Councilman Bill Cole to become the director of the Baltimore Development Corporation. The 11th District includes the downtown, Federal Hill and Bolton Hill neighborhoods.
A 13-member committee, whose chairman is City Councilman Carl Stokes, will now consider the 15 applicants. The committee will hold a meeting at 4:30 p.m. today to discuss procedures.
Once the committee recommends a candidate, the full City Council will vote on the nominee.
