The in-development Business Improvement District
for Near Southeast (which they're branding as "Capitol Riverfront
", though I currently remain unconvinced) has posted its Operating Plan
and Draft Bylaws
, after having released their Executive Summary
a few weeks back
. The Operating Plan sets out how they plan to address the areas identified as the biggest needs in the neighborhood: Clean, Safe, Marketing PR & Branding, Business Development, Infrastructure Development, and Community Building. In other words, the streets will be clean before Nats games and trash cans will be installed, fear not! Note that the BID still needs to get buy-in from neighborhood commercial property owners, and go through the legislative process and get approval from the city council before being officially created.
