Subject: [WARD5] Release of the draft Mid City East Small Area Plan for Public Comment

I am very pleased to present the Draft Mid City East Small Area Plan, a framework for conservation, development and connectivity in the neighborhoods of Bloomingdale, Eckington, LeDroit Park , Bates/ Truxton Circle, Hanover, Sursum Corda and portions of Edgewood and Stronghold. The plan is downloadable here: www.midcityeast.com. Please let me know if you would like me to send you a hard copy for your review.
I would like to extend my sincere thanks to the Advisory Committee, for your thoughtful approach and feedback throughout this process – you have been integral to shaping this plan. Over the past year, a team of city planners, consultants, agency representatives and community leaders led a comprehensive planning effort that thoroughly examined the study area and engaged its residents in a robust public engagement process that incorporated both traditional and unconventional methods of outreach. The resulting plan is evidence of the impact of teamwork and citizen involvement in generating ideas and setting priorities to achieve the shared goal of making the District of Columbia a more inclusive city and a better place to live. As you’ll note, the plan places a premium on preserving and enhancing neighborhood character and enhancing corridors, especially North Capitol Street.
