The Loch Raven Improvement Association is a dynamic community that is well-positioned for the future. As we continue our mission to keep 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 the committees that exist to serve and 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 even more residents become engaged in community participation by making an annual dues contribution, attending meetings, participating on committees, and maintaining a viable neighborhood by addressing substandard housing conditions, unlawful behavior, and other unacceptable quality-of-life issues.
THE STRENGTH AND STABILILTY OF OUR NEIGHBORHOOD DEPENDS ON YOU!!!
Get involved and enjoy what is the Loch Raven Improvement Association. _

'Tis the season for frigid temperatures and blustery conditions. The Baltimore City Department of Public Works (DPW) reminds residents that residential water lines, as well as the City's water main infrastructure, may be impacted by cold weather temperatures.
Water service lines and water meters can freeze when the temperature remains below 25 degrees for extended periods of time. Sub-freezing temperatures can also impact water mains, causing the ground to buckle and shift, resulting in broken water lines.
Protect your pipes, and know what to do in case of water emergencies!
