Community Resiliency Hubs provide essential resources and community support during times of crisis. Each Hub is led by a community-based non-profit organization, in partnership with the City of Baltimore and other community organizations, leaders, and volunteers in the neighborhood where the hub is located. There are 17 Community Resiliency Hubs total in Baltimore City. Civic Works’ Community Resiliency Hub program will have solar power and battery back-up capabilities.
The Community Resiliency Hub will be located at: 3501 Brehms Ln suite b, Baltimore, MD 21213. Belair-Edison is a neighborhood in the Northeastern part of Baltimore, Maryland. It is located along Harford and Bel Air Roads, above Sinclair Lane, bounded on its eastern and northern side by Herring Run Park. See image below:
The Community Resiliency Hub will be powered by emergency electricity when the electrical grid is down. This is accomplished through a solar canopy and battery bank system located in the east parking lot of Civic Works. The Community Resiliency Hub solar canopy and battery bank will power:
The installation of the solar canopy, battery bank system as well as the hub will be constructed in the third and 4th quarter of 2023. The goal is to have the Resiliency Hub operating by January 2024.
As we get closer to completing the installation of the Community Resiliency Hub, we will be reaching out to the local community to identify and talk with key organizations and people who would be willing to volunteer and provide their support to the Resiliency Hub during an emergency.
