Thank you for the more than 300 comments and ideas we received so far! Your continued participation is exactly what we need for the project to meet its goals of renewing and upgrading the function and aesthetics of the publicly owned land in the 700 and 800 blocks of Pennsylvania Avenue, SE.
As a recap, here’s what’s happened so far: 1) Tommy Wells facilitated open community input meetings on July 8th and July 13th, 2) this EMMP website went live on July 15th, providing you with an ongoing way to comment — both on our blog and transportation map, and 3) a physical site map and suggestion box was housed in Eastern Market’s North Hall for most of the month through August 6th. We’ve alerted people about these through the BRMS newsletter and website.
And here’s what will happen next: we will continue to collect and consider each and every comment we receive through our blog and transportation map, so keep the ideas coming! Send your ideas through the transportation site or our blog, or plan to attend one of several more open community meetings we plan to hold throughout the autumn. Stay tuned and check back often — or sign up for the BRMS newsletter.
