Just a reminder (as I scramble desperately for fresh content during the August Dead Zone) that tomorrow night (Thursday, Aug. 2
) is the open house on the new ballpark's Transportation Operations and Parking Plan
. There will be information stations "manned by DDOT, Sports Commission and traffic consultants to allow residents to learn about Traffic Operations and Parking; Transit, Pedestrian Access and Bikes; and Residential Parking Permits, [and] Curbside Management (including shuttle and charter buses)." If you haven't peeked at it yet, here's the TOPP executive summary
, or, if you're in need of 8 or 10 hours of light reading, the complete 58 MB version
(summary, contents, and appendices). Or you can read my quick impressions
from a few days ago.
The open house is at the new 20 M Street
office building at Half and M, SE, from 6 to 8 pm
New Capitol Riverfront Web Site
Aug 1, 2007 12:12 PM
A few weeks back I linked to a new video created by the Washington DC Economic Partnership
showcasing all of the plans for the Anacostia waterfront, not only in Near Southeast but also the other areas along the Anacostia River. Since then, the WDCEP has launched a full web site
devoted to this "Capitol Riverfront" area, with details on the various projects in the pipeline. While there's not much there about Near Southeast that you can't already find on certain obsessive-compulsive web sites, there's a good deal of information and renderings about planned projects in Southwest and Anacostia. (And you can watch the video again, too.)
Note: this is not
the web site for the new Capitol Riverfront Business Improvement District--that site is still under development
, though it will probably feature much of the same information, specific just to Near Southeast and Buzzards Point.
