The Department of Public Works has been having meetings to solicit input on the redevelopment of land they own and use in Ivy City. They will be holding an open house on October 15th and sent the invitation below. To find more information on the project there is a one-page handout or you can look on-line at the Office of Planning website for additional postings. We hope that you can attend to give your voice to this development that will be on the north edge of Trinidad.
You are invited to a public open house on Thursday, October 15, 2015 at 6:30pm at the Department of Public Works offices at 1831 Fenwick Street NE to discuss the proposed improvements for the Public Works Campus at West Virginia Avenue NE.
The District initiated the Public Works Campus Master Plan to explore the transformation of the Public Works Campus at West Virginia Avenue NE into a model of sustainable public works operations and a catalyst for community development. Over the past six months, the DC Office of Planning (OP) and the Department of General Services (DGS) have engaged Ward 5 residents and key stakeholders in Ivy City and Trinidad to create a blueprint for a new Public Works Campus with connections to the surrounding community. A variety of meetings were held during this time including a public open house, drop-in office hours, and a focus group, to collect community ideas and comments.
Come learn more about the plan’s recommendations and find out how the proposed project responded to public feedback received at previous meetings. Please share this invitation (and the attached flyer) with your neighbors and other people or groups who you think would be interested in attending.

Here is a great opportunity for community members to voice their opinions on a major District development project on West Virginia Ave just north of Mt. Olivet Road. Here is the message from the District Office of Planning.
Have some fun with TNA this summer and get an inside look at a local business. Come out to Atlas Brew Works on West Virginia Ave in Ivy City on Sunday June 28th for an inside look at the brewery, sample some beer and socialize with your neighbors (21 & up only). Festivities start at 1pm. We have ASL/English interpreters from Access lined up for the tour and there should be a food truck on site as well.
A big thanks to TNA member Rokas Reipa for coordinating this event with Atlas Brew Works.
On June 4th, the Office of Planning held an open house introducing the public to the West Virginia Avenue Public Works Campus Master Plan project. The District’s vehicle maintenance, re-fueling and parking facilities along West Virginia Ave between Mt. Olivet Road and New York Avenue is set to be transformed “into a model of sustainable public works operations and a catalyst for community development.” Over the next 6 months there will be various opportunities for the public to contribute to the process, including open office hours, focus group visioning sessions and another open house in the fall.
