Five new mixed-use neighborhoods in a historic district? A new Metro station? This is big.
And this is potentially the last public meeting where the city is seeking comment on preliminary plans for the St. Elizabeths East Campus redevelopment. I'm sure there will be many more after a master developer is chosen, but it's still a great opportunity to speak up on the way we want it to look, be, feel, and grow.
Tuesday, October 28, 2008 from 6:30-8:30 P.M.Where:
Saint Elizabeths Chapel, Main SanctuaryWhat:
2700 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, SE
The DC Office of Planning has published for public review and comment the Saint Elizabeths East Redevelopment Framework Draft Plan (PDF). The Plan is an update of the 2006 draft plan which provides more detailed guidance on how the District should respond to current development opportunities, transportation, historic preservation, and sustainability challenges. In addition to receiving written comments on the Draft Plan, the DC Office of Planning, in partnership with the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development, is hosting a Mayoral Hearing.See you there!
The public is invited to view boards with visual representation pertaining to the recommendations in the Draft Final Plan and ask staff questions relative to the graphic displays. Following this, members of the public will have an opportunity to offer comments. All oral comments will be limited to three minutes for each person.
