Learn More about Preservation’s Role in Development Tuesday, December 10th

*** THE DECEMBER 10TH MEETING HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO THE SNOW EVENT. IT WILL BE RESCHEDULED FOR JANUARY ***

Neighborhood development is something everyone I’ve encountered seems to care about. Because of this, I’ve decided to work on developing a series of meetings for residents to learn more about development in their community and how they can be involved to help shape the future of their neighborhood. The first meeting has been scheduled for Tuesday, December 10th, and will be held at the Park View Recreation Center. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m.

The topic of Tuesday’s meeting will be preservation and how it impacts development. To help facilitate the discussion, DC’s State Historic Preservation Officer, David Maloney, will be in attendance. Preservation is just one tool open to residents in mapping the future of their communities. Others include zoning, transportation, infrastructure, and the list goes on. The goal is for future meetings to focus on each of these topics.

As the focus of the first meeting is preservation, any of the following topics may be discussed:

  • preservation’s role in new development;
  • conservation districts (a new idea being considered by the District);
  • historic districts (ANC 1A voted in support of the Meridian Hill Historic district this year);
  • historic landmarks and the landmarking process;
  • pop-ups; and
  • anything else time allows.

Also, the Historic Preservation Office recently distributed copies of the 2016 District of Columbia Historic Preservation Plan. An electronic copy of that document can be retrieved by clicking on the image below.
