Adams Morgan might get more green space, an increase in affordable housing and a compost site under a long-term D.C. plan for the neighborhood.

The D.C. Office of Planning released a 32-page draft of its “Vision Framework” for Adams Morgan yesterday. The proposal includes 17 goals for “creating great places,” “redefining retail,” “embracing sustainability,” “strengthening identity through arts history and culture” and “bolstering community.”

“The Adams Morgan Vision Framework provides strategic planning direction that seeks to reinforce the long-standing character and identity of the neighborhood through a number of short and long term actions with the overarching goal of remaining a textured and vibrant neighborhood and outstanding place to live,” according to the Vision Framework, which took a year to make.

Here are the goals, along with recommendations (which you can click to see a bigger image):


Joshua Silver, the Office of Planning’s Ward 1 neighborhood planner, is accepting comments from the public on the Vision Framework until Dec. 8 by email.
