The Dundalk Renaissance Corporation (DRC) is pleased to announce the launch of Unexpected Dundalk, a rebranding campaign to entice new residents to the community.
Kicking off this summer with a new logo and redesigned website, Unexpected Dundalk’s mission is to showcase the area’s sustainable and beautiful community that offers both affordable living and accessibility.
“We are excited to begin this new phase of our efforts to attract Dundalk’s next generation, and grateful to our many partners and funders for their engagement and support. Come check us out; we bet you’ll be pleasantly surprised,” said Amy Menzer, Executive Director of the Dundalk Renaissance Corporation.
The Dundalk Housing Fair, debuting on September 27, 2014, will offer the opportunity for home buyers to win $5,000 “Golden Key” grants to 30 new homebuyers, as well as “work where you live” incentives from local businesses. (Baltimore Fishbowl posted about these incentive grants earlier today.) Attendees will be able to speak one-on-one with real estate agents, mortgage lenders, housing specialists and renovation experts, as well as discover Dundalk’s neighborhoods and tour for sale homes on four narrated bus tours.
“Dundalk is a proud community, one filled with great pride and patriotism,” states Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz. “Baltimore County recognizes that strength and is honored to partner with the State and the Dundalk Renaissance Corporation to kick-off a new home ownership initiative and campaign that will highlight Dundalk’s importance in the region.”
In an area where the median home cost is under $120,000 and the cost of living is more than three percent lower than the national average, Dundalk offers residents beautiful parks and waterfront living, as well as wide choices for retail, dining and family activities, all set against the backdrop of one of the Baltimore region’s oldest historic districts.
“The State of Maryland is proud to be investing in the revitalization of Dundalk through our Baltimore Regional Neighborhood Initiative. These funds will leverage additional investment from new residents and strengthen neighborhoods, leading to a more vibrant and sustainable region,” said Raymond A. Skinner, Secretary, Maryland Department of Housing & Community Development.
