The Vision, Mission, and Values of Dundalk Renaissance

Dundalk Renaissance is a non-profit community development corporation whose mission is to mobilize stakeholders to invest in greater Dundalk’s neighborhoods, economy, and quality of life.

We envision Dundalk’s future as a sustainable community in which people live, work, and thrive.  We attract and welcome diverse neighbors.  Our parks, waterfront, schools, and commercial centers are vibrant assets that enrich our quality of life.  Our housing includes a variety of choices, renovated and new, that are affordable to a wide range of people, contribute to healthy neighborhoods, and create opportunities to build wealth.  We work in partnership with our commercial and industrial sectors to enhance community livability and environmental quality.

Dundalk Renaissance is guided by the following values:

Neighborliness: Communities thrive when individuals care deeply about their neighbors, take responsibility for themselves, and support each other in times of need and celebration as well as in resolving everyday challenges.

Innovation: DRC welcomes innovation and investment that strengthens Dundalk’s economic health and quality of life.

Heritage: Dundalk has a rich historical legacy as a place and a people, including our walkable National Register Historic District, our role defending the nation in the War of 1812 and our demonstration of the dignity in hard work through a century of industry.

DiversityWe embrace diversity and inclusiveness of all kinds. Our diversity strengthens Dundalk as a community.

Opportunity: Dundalk should offer all its residents a chance to succeed through access to jobs and job training; safe, stable neighborhoods; a quality education; a clean and healthy environment; and home ownership that builds wealth.”

Sustainability: Creating a cleaner, greener, walkable, bikeable Dundalk benefits residents, neighborhoods, and the environment.

Engagement: Our community is strongest when its residents and businesses invest time and resources as volunteers and stakeholders in the community’s future. We advocate for the implementation of policies, programs, and projects that benefit Dundalk.

Unity: While each neighborhood has a special identity and history, together they form a cohesive Dundalk community that is strongest when working together.
