(Washington, DC) On Saturday, April 30th at 12 pm, Mayor Muriel Bowser, the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED), the District of Columbia Housing Finance Agency (DCHFA), District leaders, and community members will cut the ribbon on The Appleton, The Robeson, and The Rows, three communities that make up the Spring Flats redevelopment that transforms a previously blighted site into affordable housing for seniors and families as well as homeownership opportunities.
Spring Flats redevelopment is an “OurRFP” project, which received community feedback and input for design. “OurRFP” is a community-based approach to developing requests for proposals (RFPs) implemented in Mayor Bowser’s first term that engaged residents to ensure their needs, wants, and priorities were understood and considered before crafting the RFP.
This exciting redevelopment in the Petworth neighborhood has already begun to bring many benefits to the community, including an improved and rededicated streetscape and public art, among others.
