Participate in Upcoming Community Engagement Activities:

 

Community Design Conversations - Saturday, December 3, 10:30am-1:30pm

Join this two-part series of in-person engagements focused on exploring opportunities for future design and development along the Wisconsin Avenue corridor, with a focus on Tenleytown and Friendship Heights.

Attend the Community Design Conversations on a walk-in basis, and engage in the way that is most meaningful for you, be it through providing written input or convening in small group discussions with neighbors and the project team. 

Through these engagements, community members and stakeholders are invited to participate in a facilitated experience that:

  • provides background context on the planning objectives for this process; 
  • explores scenarios for future development opportunities that maximizes housing production, particularly affordable housing that support residents with a range of household incomes; and 
  • creates spaces for dialogue to share ideas and feedback that can be incorporated into final development and public realm opportunities.

This process is open to everyone, and we encourage all who are interested in exploring the potential for future planning and development opportunities in Ward 3 to attend.

Community Design Conversation #1 in Tenleytown occured on November 19.

PROJECT OVERVIEW

 

The Wisconsin Avenue Development Framework is a neighborhood planning effort focused on the Friendship Heights and Tenleytown neighborhoods and is part of a broader Rock Creek West Corridors Planning initiative outlined in the 2021 Rock Creek West Roadmap. The planning process is led by the Office of Planning (OP) and is intended to implement the Comprehensive Plan Act of 2021, particularly where land use designations have been updated along Wisconsin Avenue.

The Wisconsin Avenue Development Framework will provide specific guidance on possible zoning changes consistent with the Comprehensive Plan that can deliver additional housing capacity in this high-opportunity, mixed-use corridor. This guidance will inform potential Zoning Map Amendments or Planned Unit Developments. The Wisconsin Avenue Development Framework will also provide guidance on a commercial action strategy focused on Friendship Heights and a public realm plan for the entire study area.
