The primary objective of the project is to transform the Metro Park area and surrounding DPR parkland into a safe and thriving ‘Town Square’ supporting multi-generational social activities for the Capitol Hill community.
Other park objectives include improved park connectivity, enhanced multi-modal transit access, and increased green infrastructure.
Attend the meeting to find out about the next stages in the process, ask questions and give input.
The District will be pursuing its first ENVISION certification from the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure. The ENVISION framework will help to align this project with other overarching citywide resiliency goals and demonstrate our continued commitment to building a sustainable future.
The meeting takes place from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13 at the Hill Center at Old Naval Hospital (921 Pennsylvania Ave. SE)
