Community Guide

About this project

The Baltimore Region Environmental Justice and Transportation Project (BREJT Project) since 2003 has been listening to low-income minority communities describe the impact that transportation has on their environment and in their lives. Our primary objective has been to develop a toolkit, which encourages government and communities to better work together to achieve environmentally sound solutions when addressing community identified environmental problems.

BREJT’s research efforts focused on the concerns of local residents, transit dependant and community leaders in four Baltimore City communities: Kirk Ave., Cherry Hill, Highway–to-Nowhere, and Lexington Market. In these communities we found a common desire for a better living environment, a more responsive government, and the presence of blight and decay.

PIECE Studio created a translational research community guide.
