Submit Comments on Hill East Redevelopment
Thursday is the last day that citizens can comment on the developer proposals for the redevelopment of the District's Hill East waterfront area, which sits on about 67 acres on the west side of the Anacostia River near Robert F. Kennedy Stadium. (For more coverage, read today's story by The Post's Paul Schwartzman.)
The area to be redeveloped, according to a city web site, covers about 50 acres. The city hopes a successful project will link Capitol Hill with the Anacostia River by creating a mixed-use, mixed-income community with "tree-lined public streets, recreational trails, and accessible waterfront parklands."
Several developers submitted proposals during a period that closed in October; they're available, along with other materials, on the Hill East web site run by the city's Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development.
Comments can be submitted via an e-mail form.
The District, which currently targets 2010 for the opening of a first construction phase, plans to select a developer later this year.
