Baltimore’s failing infrastruc­ture strikes again

- — Ed Schneider, Baltimore

Baltimore fails to maintain its infrastruc­ture, and the city’s failure led to the collapse of an outdated tunnel under North Avenue near Greenmount Cemetery. The collapse led to a sinkhole that required homes to be demolished (“A North Avenue storm drain collapse could take months to repair. Owners of demolished Baltimore row houses face even more uncertaint­y.” Aug. 1).

Your article states the city will charge the now-homeless homeowners (at least one of whom was denied coverage by his homeowner’s insurance for his home’s destructio­n) for the city’s demolition and infrastruc­ture repairs. This is another example of Baltimore City government going out of its way to punish residents for living here.
