Comptroller Franchot is traveling to Baltimore to see how the city is growing in jobs and housing. 

He will first go to a Turnaround Tuesday meeting, which helps unemployed, or people returning to the workforce, create job opportunities. 

At the meeting, Franchot will be joined by Douglass Miles, a co-chairman emeritus for Baltimoreans United In Leadership Development (BUILD). BUILD created Turnaround Tuesdays and the East Oliver project. 

Following the meeting, the Comptroller will have a chance to tour the East Oliver project, which has removed and rebuilt homes in the Oliver community. More than 400 homes have been developed since the project started.
