Anacostia River Corridor Vision

The Anacostia River and its parks are part of a big, complex network of spaces managed by many different government agencies and with many different types of neighborhood contexts. (Learn more about the many plans and projects along the river here). 

No single agency is “in charge” of the river to make sure that the corridor is designed to not only support clean water and wildlife, but also to improve the quality of life of Ward 7 and 8 residents. The Anacostia Park and Community Collaborative brings together stakeholder voices to help make sure that restoration and development that comes to the Anacostia River corridor align with a community-based vision for how this important resource can equitably serve nearby residents who have long suffered from a lack of investment.  

To participate in the ongoing, evolving creation of this vision, please join us for an upcoming meeting or event in your neighborhood.
