Public Invited to Review Preliminary Design Concepts 
for 10th Street and Banneker Connections

Washington, DC – Ever wonder how to get from the National Mall to the waterfront? To advance a key recommendation of the SW Ecodistrict Initiative, NCPC and its local and federal partners are in the early stages of developing concepts to improve conditions and connections from 10th Street and Independence Avenue to Banneker Park and the SW waterfront.

Project planners are asking the public for help reimagining 10th Street as a place for festivals and events… or a living green corridor showcasing sustainability…or both! Additionally, planners want input on how to create an interim connection between Banneker Park and the waterfront.
On Tuesday, May 21, 2013 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. NCPC will host a public meeting to discuss what’s possible for these significant connections in Southwest. NCPC staff and project consultant ZGF Architects will present draft concept designs for 10th Street streetscape improvements, storm water management solutions, and an interim connection at Banneker Park. Public comments will be accepted through June 21, 2013.
The presentation will be streamed live at
