At Your Service

Covering Hill Residents’ Assets

Councilmember Wells solicits community input on Eastern Market METRO Park / Plaza Renovations

Barracks Row Mainstreet

How would you like to see the public space improved in the two-block area along Pennsylvania Avenue, SE, from 7th Street to 9th Streets? This area, which includes the Eastern Market METRO Station, was intended by Pierre L’Enfant to be one of the city’s great community public spaces. Today, however, instead of a beautiful, exhilarating, green public space, the area looks tired and in need of renewal and refurbishment, both aesthetically and functionally.

H Street Life

The H Street NE Corridor has seen remarkable growth in recent years. What began as an arts, bar and restaurant driven revival has expanded. We are now experiencing a major influx of grocery stores, often with an organic bent, and the Corridor is home to a burgeoning vintage clothing scene.

Improvements Coming to 10th Street SW Corridor

South by West

The National Capital Planning Commission hosted a Southwest Ecodistrict Initiative public meeting in mid-May that discussed options contemplated for Banneker Park at 10th Street SW and for stormwater management throughout the ecodistrict. The Southwest Ecodistrict Initiative is a comprehensive plan to create a sustainable mixed-use community in a 110-acre area south of the National Mall which currently includes a significant amount of federal office space.
