The city of Baltimore is looking to implement a new housing and relocation program to encourage an influx of residents to its city. The program is led by RPS Solutions, a company that’s working in conjunction with the city’s municipal government, and local urban development firms to increase Baltimore’s home ownership by over 48.3% this coming year. Spearheading this development is Kevin Seawright, a pioneer of urban development and community improvement, and he sat down for an interview with a Baltimore talk radio station to talk about the prospects. “We’re just passionate about home ownership in Baltimore,” he told the host and went on to say “We’re also trying to give home buyers the opportunity to have a home, and create stability in neighborhoods.”
Kevin Seawright has been a big part of Baltimore’s planning and finance committees for many years, helping allocate funds and resources to various sectors and managing human resources and payroll services. Kevin Seawright was instrumental in starting Baltimore’s CitiStat program, a program that helped create a rapid response units to various citizens’ concerns. It also provided a look at the city’s various departments to determine which ones need improvement and where city funds can better be used.
Kevin Seawright also has served on the Newark Community Economic Development Corporation, helping to bring commercial and residential projects to the downtown area of the New Jersey City. When not at work, Seawright is engaged with his local community coaching youth sports teams, and is on the board at the Babe Ruth Museum. Seawright is also a husband and father of a young daughter.
