SW Ecodistrict Plan Completed
The Commission accepted the SW Ecodistrict Plan at its January meeting. In addition to accommodating the future space needs of the federal government, the ecodistrict will extend the civic qualities of the National Mall, create new places to live, and promote a vibrant, open, and walkable neighborhood. Led by NCPC, the initiative, involving 17 federal and District agencies, seeks to transform a 15-block federal precinct just south of the National Mall into a showcase of sustainable urban development.
With the Commission’s action, the plan will guide future planning studies and development proposals in the area. We're working on three studies to implement the plan – a stormwater infrastructure study, 10th Street Interim Streetscape & Banneker Overlook Connection study, and an economic analysis.
