This summer’s $2 million acquisition of empty lots at the corner of Federal and Republican was just the start of the work required to bring a new green space to this part of Capitol Hill. The community group formed to push this work forward and help guide the city’s park process is meeting Monday night at the Capitol Hill library to discuss this process and plans to put the empty space to use in the interim. Details on the meeting and a few park updates, below.
Neighbor Jeff sent some of the latest FedRep news our way. The community group’s mission, he says, is to recommend uses for the future park to the parks department. He says the group now has some funding from the city and is hiring a consultant. As Jeff puts it, the group is entering “the serious discussion phase” of the project.

We are meeting tonight at 6:30 to 7:30 in the meeting room upstairs in the Capitol Hill Library.
We are meeting to plan the strategy for getting the word out for the formal community meetings the city requires. We are also planning future fundraisers for park development, interim uses until the city decides on the formal uses, working with the architect who will create the formal park and how to get the word out in the future.
