Pride Inc. to continue selling ice cream at the Inner Harbor

April 27, 2006|By JOHN FRITZE | JOHN FRITZE,SUN REPORTER

Pride of Baltimore Inc., the nonprofit group that sails a replica of a 19th-century clipper ship from the Inner Harbor, will continue to sell ice cream at a kiosk under a legal settlement approved by the Board of Estimates yesterday.

The agreement, which requires the group to pay $25,000 in annual rent, ends the group's long-running battle with the city over its vending business on the waterfront. As part of the settlement, City Hall will make a $40,000 grant to the group that will be used for its capital campaign to re-rig the Pride of Baltimore II.

The ship lost both masts while sailing off the coast of France last year, according to the group's Internet site. A city lawyer said the organization will sign a management agreement that spells out the terms of its food business. Officials with Pride of Baltimore did not return calls seeking comment.
