From Howie B   
 
The streets are cleaner, the air seems fresher and the attitude is a controlled vibe of excitement. Always some forward progress and something new. The City is preparing for the inaugural Baltimore Grand Prix on September 2-4, 2011, Labor Day weekend. This will bring some new attention to the City, some additional visitors, a new activity for everyone and new added economic activity to the area. We wish the City great success with this new event. For more information, visit www.BaltimoreGrandPrix.com.
 
Howie B continues to renovate and update throughout the City and County. In Fells Point all residential units now have gorgeous hardwood floors, NO carpeting and many energy-saving features such as higher efficiency furnaces, ceiling fans and compact fluorescent lighting throughout, along with all updated common hallways. In West Baltimore we just completed an incredible full rehab of a house that had not been lived in for over a decade. See below for the wonderful amenities of this three bedroom, two full bath environmentally friendly semi-detached house with a porch and rear deck, located at 2149 Mount Holly Street, 21216. Additionally, in Baltimore County we are updating a three bedroom, two bath row home with a finished basement in a cul-de-sac setting on the east side. This house should be available in mid- to late-August. Call Howie B for any further inquiries.
 
In a continuing effort to see how Howie B can improve our service to you, we have been using text messaging to notify you of completed service calls and other matters. Many of you have been contacting us directly via texting on a 24/7 basis with your service needs, and that's great. Please be sure to include your name and address within the text along with the details of your service needs. If it's hard to explain in a few words, just call me directly to provide the details so we can resolve it quickly and efficiently. An overnight or early morning text will generally be addressed the same business service day.
 
On a personal note, I joined Toastmasters International® about a year ago. I have given 11 speeches to date on subjects ranging from "Announcing My Candidacy for Mayor of Baltimore" (not really) to "Why Cemeteries Should Be Banned". The goal of this informal, eclectic, multi-chapter group is to provide each member with a supportive environment in which to become a more effective communicator and leader, which is useful in every facet of one's life. This will help you communicate more effectively and comfortably with your spouse, children, co-workers, business contacts, employees, a nasty service person and anyone else you meet, in any environment and through any method of communication - in person, by phone, in writing or electronically. Consider being a guest and visiting any one of the many Toastmasters® groups. My group meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at noon, downtown, with free parking. Meetings are exactly one hour long. Call me if you have an interest or questions. It's been great fun from the beginning and I have met some very interesting and smart people!

My Top Five "Overall Good Neighbor" Tips:

1)    Be respectful of your neighbors’ by keeping your space appropriately clean, yards walkways, curbs, etc.  – Follow trash collection rules by bringing your trash cans from the street as soon as possible after collect and be sure that recycling is in secured containers.  This will also minimize trash working its way around the neighborhood.

2)    As you walk down the street going to dinner, to or from your car, to do errands or wherever you go... make it a daily habit to pick up one piece of trash or pull one weed.  My son can attest, I have been doing this for decades everywhere I go.  We all are impacted by minor things like trash and weeds, so it is our collective responsibility to make our homes and communities a better cleaner place to live for everyone.

3)    For the safety of everyone, get to know your neighbors at least by face and hopefully by name.  This makes for more a cordial community.  Most people don’t move far or often, so you will probably see these familiar faces many times as you live here over the years.

4)    Take notice of any minor problems with neighboring properties, such as overgrown grass, overgrown shrubs, abandoned vehicles, junk in the yard, etc.   Make a casual mention to the neighbor in person or via a note at their door; they are very likely to resolve an issue without any fanfare.  If it is a continuing problem or you do not want to confront your neighbor, Howie B will be happy to contact them to have the issue resolved for you, let me know. Or call 311 to report the issue in the City.

5)   Always be aware of your surroundings and safety features.  If you see lighting, sidewalks, curb, debris or safety issues report them to the appropriate parties ASAP.  We take all safety concerns very seriously.  All City issues can be reported by calling 311 or at www.baltimorecity.gov. We can be reached via text, telephone, website, fax and email.

Thanks for being a great neighbor!
