New Broadway East Cmmunity Association
Dr. Doris Minor-Terrell spent most of her career as an educator in the Baltimore school system. She retired as an assistant principal and was admired for dealing with any situtation in a calm and professional manner.
Following her retirement, Minor-Terrell became a paralegal and helped clients during difficult times with her sharp analytical skills.
In 2015, Minor-Terrell and several residents of Broadway East established the New Broadway East Community Association. The goal was to empower t0 community and revitalize a neighborhood in the community’s vision. Broadway East faced 40% unemployment with a median income of $36,000.
Under her leadership, the neighborhood has initiated several projects including a plan for its 900 vacant lots called the Greenprint which was finished in August 2020. The partnership with the Bloomburg School of Health and The 6th Branch created a walking trail along N. Wolfe Street. The project included planting 200 trees to provide a canopy. The association plans to plant another 200 trees in the spring of 2021 and is working with American Communities Trust on its Last Mile Initiative on areas along the Amtrak route to greet passengers into Broadway East and Baltimore.-
