(Washington, DC) – On Wednesday, April 12 at 11 am, Mayor Muriel Bowser, the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development, DC Government agencies, and community partners will highlight current efforts to bring more people to Downtown DC.

DC’s Comeback Plan outlines a three-pronged approach to the transformation and revitalization of downtown: fill the space, change the space, and bring the people. Wednesday’s event marks the kickoff of Jazz in Bloom, a series of concerts organized by the Office of Cable TV Film Music and Entertainment at Union Station, highlighting the importance of the transit hub as the portal to downtown DC.

Throughout the week, the Mayor is highlighting how investments in her Fiscal Year 2024 Fair Shot budget proposal support DC’s comeback through investments in housing and bringing back downtown.
