The Future of Reservation 13
Monday, March 26, 2012
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Eastern High School
1700 East Capitol Street NE
In December, 12 ANC commissioners invited Mayor Gray to participate in a community meeting to discuss stalled development plans at Reservation 13. The site’s master plan, approved by the DC Council in 2002, envisioned a mixed-use residential, retail and office development that extended neighborhood streets to the Anacostia River.
Recently, Mayor Gray has stated his desire to build a training facility for the Washington Redskins at Reservation 13 and/or the RFK parking lots. At the March 26 meeting, the Mayor is expected to discuss the proposed facility and his vision for developing area. ANC commissioners are interested in how a training facility would fit into the community-supported master development plan.
In addition to the March 26 meeting with the Mayor, interested residents can learn more about Reservation 13 and the master plan at an informational meeting on Thursday, March 22, 2012, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm at St. Coletta of Greater Washington, 1901 Independence Avenue SE.
The 12 ANC commissioners, representing Single Member Districts in both Wards 6 & 7, are: Nick Alberti (6A05), Francis Campbell (6B10), Sheila Carson-Carr (7A01), Jared Critchfield (6B06), Brian Flahaven (6B09), David Holmes (6A03), Neil Glick (6B08), Carol Green (6B07), Villareal Johnson (7A07), Brian Pate (6B05), Lia Veenendaal-Selck (6A08) and Lisa White (7D01).
