Livable Place in Industrial Space

Phot courtesty of Google

Reimagining the Gateway To The City

Join me this Saturday in a discussion about enhancing the livability of neighborhoods in industrial areas.  This is part of “Eagle Fest” hosted by the Greater New York Ave. Group (GNYAGG).   My presentation topics  will include:

1. Creating cycle-centric hospitality by enhancing the use of the  Anacostia Riverwalk Trail.

2. Realizing the true potential of the Anacostia River along route 50. New York Ave.

3. Overview of the Gateway Capitol Concept (Eco Capitol, Innovation Capitol & Arts Capitol)

4. Connecting the Gateway – Multi-modal options for optimal livability and accessibility.

The  presentation content is only an exercise in imagining the potential of the NY Avenue Gateway but is sure to be exciting.

UPDATE: Drove by this morning and observed a NOW OPEN sign displayed at the store!

On Friday, we will have a closer grocery store option that will allow us to buy quality foods in normal quantities.  According to the store’s website, we can Celebrate the Grand Opening of MOM’s first Washington, DC store!  5% of Grand Opening sales will be donated to Sasha Bruce Youthwork (SBY), a youth shelter and services provider doing wonderful work in the city.  Stop by for local samples, kid’s activities, and a reusable MOM’s bag full of goodies (while supplies last), all while supporting SBY! Click the link below for further details.

What’s Next For The New York Ave. Site?

NYAve

The Site of the former Wal-Mart Development has been one of the most difficult to develop along the New York Ave. Corridor.  The site is now owned by Douglas Development who has been known to transform some of the least sough out properties and turning them into gems.  Below are the former plans for the site which consists of a multi-family development Arbor Place  and the most recent Point at Arboretum.

ANC 5C03 Elections (Petition for Nomination)

 

ANC 5C Map
After a lot of deliberation, I have decided to complete the Nomination Application for ANC Commissioner for Fort Lincoln! We need swift resolution to a plethora of issues as well as planning initiatives with several city departments. It takes a certain level of competence to work through the complex issues, passion for Fort Lincoln to bring closure to long standing problems and the willingness to listen and work with our residents whether you are a Senior, a long time resident or new to the community. I am ready to take this challenge head-on and start to bring the significant yet gradual change to residents of Fort Lincoln. We deserve the same level of Respect, Attentiveness, and Amenities as any other neighborhood in the city and I will demand it from our City Officials. I have what it takes to facilitate, organize, and execute these issues and I need your help to get it done. I will be going door to door in the next few days, respectfully requesting your signature to run for the next ANC Commissioner for Fort Lincoln ANC 5C03.

Together we can stop the cycle of prolonged excuses and make Fort Lincoln the example of what a great community should be!

Yours Truly,
Robert Looper III “RL3”
