Port Covington What?
The Port Covington Project is a $5.5 Billion development project right here in Baltimore. The project has been controversial from the start and the public has demanded for this project to be different than past Baltimore development, especially with the $660 Million in a public increment financing package. No longer should we allow development in our city to leave behind those who live in Baltimore.
Baltimore is in need of development that can provide economic opportunity for the people who live in Baltimore. Yet, even after a Community Benefit Agreement (CBA) and Memorandum of Understanding has put into place, the developers at Port Covington are still hiring contractors that have a history of wage theft and worker misclassification.
Port Covington is a development plan that can make a difference. We demand that actions be taken to remove these bad actors and create opportunity for those who need it!
