Mid City East Small Area Plan Main Page

The objective of the Office of Planning’s (OP’s) Mid City East Small Area Plan is to revitalize North Capitol Street and Florida Avenue as thriving retail and pedestrian-friendly corridors, and preserve the individual character of adjoining neighborhoods. The Small Area Plan will guide local planning and development decisions, and identify commercial corridor improvements. Concurrently, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is initiating the Mid City East Livability Study, an in-depth companion study on transportation and the public realm to guide neighborhood-scale mobility improvements.

OP, DDOT and a consultant team will work with agencies, community members, property owners and businesses to:

 Realize the collective goals of the planning area, stitched together by major corridors, and develop revitalization, neighborhood conservation, land use, transportation, zoning and public realm recommendations that will improve the quality of individual neighborhoods.

Study Area:
LeDroit Park, Bloomingdale, Eckington, Truxton Circle, Bates-Hanover and parts of Northwest One (Sursum Corda)

Phase 1: Plan Intro & Goals

Phase 4: Recommendations & Implementation Strategy
Phase 5: Draft Final Small Area Plan Report for 30-Day Public Comment Period
