SATURDAY, 6/23: Washington Street Area Plan Meeting
A community meeting to kick off the South Washington Street Small Area Planning will be held on Saturday, June 23, 2012 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Columbia Baptist Church, 103 West Columbia Street, in the Fellowship Hall. The purpose of the small area plan process is to determine community desires for development and redevelopment within the planning area.
For a map of the boundaries of the Small Area Plan, see http://bit.ly/Me0M6n. The bold section in the center, outlined in red, is the parameter of the study area.
At the meeting, community residents, property owners, and other interested persons will receive a presentation that includes existing conditions and potential redevelopment opportunities. After a presentation on existing conditions, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and/or to provide comments and ideas on desired land uses, density, transportation, and environmental/open space features.
Attendees are encouraged to walk, bike, or use the parking lot behind Columbia Baptist Church. Entrances to the parking lot are off of North Maple Avenue and from south bound on North Washington Street (Route 29). Enter the building through the double glass doors closest to North Maple Avenue. After entering the building, the staircase and the elevator are in the hallway to the right. Take the stairs or the elevator to the second floor. The Fellowship Hall is across the corridor from the elevator shaft and the staircase.
Attendees are asked to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-248-5040 so the organizers can provide sufficient seating.
