The District's Fiscal Year 2019 budget includes up to $1.5 million to support improvements to the parcel of land located at 19th & Lamont Streets NW. DPR and DGS will be working with the community to determine the scope and scale of any improvements.
A project webpage, with community meeting dates and project details, is available here. Interested neighbors are encouraged to bookmark the webpage and check it regularly to stay up-to-date as this project takes shape. https://dgs.dc.gov/page/parcel-19th-and-lamont
The first in-person community planning meeting for this project will take place from 6:30-8:30 pm on Thursday, March 28, 2019, in the large community meeting room at the Mount Pleasant Neighborhood Library (3160 16th St NW). Spanish language interpretation will be provided. All are welcome!
Four to six additional community meetings will take place in the coming months; dates will be announced several weeks prior to each meeting.
In addition, households in Mount Pleasant will receive a mailer in March 2019 with information about accessing an online survey to share their ideas and preferences for this parcel. ANC 1D covered the costs of this mailer to help increase awareness of this project and its planning process -- robust neighborhood participation is encouraged!
