Another community meeting on the redevelopment of the Park Morton public housing complex is coming up soon. But this time, Councilmember Brianne Nadeau of Ward 1 is behind the talk, her office has announced.
Nadeau is set to host a discussion on the project next week, coming after a series of public meetings the New Communities Initiative held on Park Morton. The D.C. government entity is spearheading efforts to revitalize Park View, where the public housing complex is located.
The councilmember’s talk is scheduled for Tuesday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Howard University School of Architecture (2366 6th St. NW).
The gathering will include a presentation from Nadeau, a question-and-answer period and a discussion on what’s next.
The redevelopment project has faced opposition from some locals, who are concerned about green space in Park View.
Bruce Monroe Community Park’s land at 3000 Georgia Ave. NW is set to hold a mixed-use and mixed-income development intended to include residents of Park Morton. The public housing complex is slated to close in the coming years.
After Nadeau’s talk, the New Communities Initiative is slated to host another community meeting on the project Jan. 25.
