October 30, 2002|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

From Randallstown to Greektown, communities in Baltimore County and Baltimore City were awarded more than $2.2 million in grants yesterday as part of the state's Smart Growth program to rebuild older communities.

The awards, announced by Gov. Parris N. Glendening at a housing conference in Baltimore, were part of $15.5 million awarded to jurisdictions statewide.

In the city, grants will be used to help homeowners upgrade their properties in Brooklyn-Curtis Bay, to renovate the Woman's Industrial Exchange downtown, to revitalize Belvedere Square, and to launch facade improvement programs in Greektown and Washington Village/Pigtown.

In Baltimore County, $145,000 in grants will help improve the Dundalk Avenue streetscape and aid Randallstown in developing a Smart Growth plan.
