Highlandtown, Patterson Park walking tour set for May 3

The Johns Hopkins Live Near Your Work Program, in partnership with the Southeast Community Development Corp., is heading out this week to Highlandtown and Patterson Park, two neighborhoods near the East Baltimore campus.

From 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, May 3, employees can visit homes, meet residents and get a personal look at the daily life of these communities. They’ll also learn how to qualify for low-interest Healthy Neighborhoods loans and other home-buying incentives, including Johns Hopkins Live Near Your Work grants.

Those who attend any 2012 walking tour event will receive an additional $1,000 toward the down payment/closing costs of a home in the A, B or C target areas. (Buyer must settle on or before June 30, 2013.)

To register, go to hrnt.jhu.edu/service/fasapregistration or call 443-997-7000. For information about upcoming walking tours and other events, go to hopkinsworklife.org/lnyw.
