About the Reservoir Hill Association
Frequently Asked Questions
There are so many Reservoir Hill organizations, why does RHA exist?
Reservoir Hill Association (RHA) exists to provide a united voice for the Reservoir Hill community. We proudly build upon our community's long running organizing tradition.
RHA is the only all-resident-volunteer-led, grass-roots neighborhood organization representing the entirety of the Reservoir Hill community, east to west. Neighbors came together to form RHA because too often, decisions were being made about and for our community without the input of the residents most affected. RHA was incorporated in 2020 in order to make sure that there is nothing about us without us.
RHA collaborates with all organizations in Reservoir Hill to ensure a united and representational voice to the local, state, and federal government. RHA uses all of its funds to support the work and visions of our neighbors.
Reservoir Hill is also served by Upper Eutaw Madison Neighborhood Association (UEMNA), the organization serving the Baltimore City Eutaw-Madison Historic District and Historic Mt. Royal Terrace Historic District, the organization serving the Baltimore City Mt. Royal Terrace Historic District.
