Hamilton-Lauraville Main Street (HLMS) is a diverse community of businesses and residents joining together to create a thriving Harford Road.
HLMS is a Baltimore City Main Street program and follows the National Main Street's economic development model. HLMS is a partner of the Healthy Neighborhoods Initiative (HNI) program targeting investments and stabilizing middle neighborhoods. HLMS provides quality of life experiences that retain residents and attract new neighbors, and create opportunities for businesses, the lifeblood of the community.
In 2028 the Hamilton-Lauraville commercial district will be the model for the Greater Baltimore region. We achieved this unique market position by building on existing assets such as our support for community agriculture, the arts, nearby parks & nature centers and businesses. Although we are a commercial district, we are still a green community within the city – an alternative to the neighborhoods close to the harbor and suburban malls.
