The Loch Raven Improvement Association is a dynamic community that is well-positioned for the future. As we continue our mission in keeping our neighborhood safe, clean and strong, the LRIA Executive Board and membership body are fully committed to providing residents and future generations an outstanding quality of life.
The LRIA encourages membership that is actively involved in the community by joining at least one of several committees that exists to improve our lifestyle. Active participation by members of our neighborhood will continue a long tradition of community service and socially responsible practices.
As we progress through the New Year, it is hopeful that residents become engaged in community participation by making an annual dues contribution, attending meetings, and doing your part in maintaining a viable neighborhood by addressing substandard housing and sanitation conditions, unlawful behavior, and other unacceptable quality-of-life issues.
THE STRENGTH AND STABILILTY OF OUR NEIGHBORHOOD DEPENDS ON YOU!!!

The Northeast Police Department has issued an immediate advisory for the uptick in vehicular theft and car larceny not only in the Loch Raven district, but throughout Baltimore City. Certain model Hyundai and Kia vehicles are most prone to auto theft, due to a social media post that encourages thieves to use electronic devices to bypass the security features. But beware - all vehicles are susceptible targets for thieves!
Please remember to ALWAYS LOCK YOUR CAR, no matter how brief the vehicle is left unattended, and NEVER LEAVE YOUR KEYS IN AN IDLING VEHICLE. It is also highly encouraged that you use a steering wheel lock, or engine disabling device to protect your vehicle.
And be vigilant! If you observe illegal or suspicious activity, PLEASE CALL 911!!!
After much anticipation, BGE has announced plans for the newly PROPOSED Loch Raven Substation, a long-awaited electric infrastructure upgrade that will address increased demand, and continue to reliably distribute electric power to homes and businesses in the area. Note: this is a proposal only, NOT a final draft
