Second meeting on Upper 14th Street revitalization to be held Wednesday, 11/17

I attended the first meeting, which was held last month. These are good opportunities to communicate with the Office of Planning and discuss how you'd like to see Upper 14th Street develop in the future.

Where: Kingsbury Day School, 5000 14th St. NW
When: Wednesday, November 14, 7pm

Info from the Office of Planning:

The District of Columbia's Office of Planning is initiating a community planning process with area stakeholders (including residents, ANC4C and ANC4A, neighborhood organizations, Council staff, businesses, property owners, institutions and government agencies) to develop a strategic revitalization strategy for the 14th Street corridor.

The study area includes 14th Street from Spring Road to Longfellow Street with particular focus on the retail nodes of Spring Road to Shepherd Street, Webster Street to Decatur Street and Jefferson Street to Longfellow Street.

The objective of this revitalization plan is to create a more vibrant commercial corridor by strengthening the corridor’s economic environment, creating a sense of place that can be enjoyed by all nearby residents, and to help determine development opportunities for potentially underutilized sites.
