Led by the Department of Energy and Environment and the National Park Service, this plan will establish restoration goals and cleanup strategies that will address the pollutants that have resulted from decades of industrial use and urban runoff.
A proposed plan is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.

The northern half of the Kenilworth Park (KPN) was once an open-burn municipal landfill. Planning is underway to remediate the site along with the southern half of Kenilworth Park (KPS). KPN is legislated to be transferred to the District of Columbia, while KPS will remain under the management of the National Park Service.

Kenilworth Park is going to be restored. After that, the park will be granted to the District of Columbia from the Federal government. Most likely, the Department of Parks and Recreation will manage the park.
The District of Columbia’s Comprehensive Plan is a 20-year framework that guides future growth and development. Originally adopted in 2006 and amended in 2011, it addresses a wide range of topics that affect how we experience the city. These topics include land use, economic development, housing, environmental protection, historic preservation, transportation, and more.
