IMPORTANT COMMUNITY MEETING:

Hosted by Councilmember Tommy Wells

Tuesday, December 14 | 6-7:30pm
North Hall at Eastern Market
7th and North Carolina Ave, SE

The Capitol Hill community is invited to view design concepts for a proposed information hub that may be stationed at Eastern Market Metro Plaza to provide an efficient and serviceable visitor center.

Tonight from 6:00 – 7:30 pm , architects and representatives from several community organizations will be in the North Hall of Eastern Market to present five proposed design concepts. Feedback and suggestions from the entire Capitol Hill community will be welcome–and encouraged.

Representatives from several neighborhood and business organizations – CHAMPS, Capitol Hill’s Chamber of Commerce, Capitol Hill BID, ANC 6B, Barracks Row Main Street, and the Capitol Hill Restoration Society – have been working with DDOT and Ward 6 Councilmember Tommy Wells, exploring several design options for a more permanent structure on the plaza as a way to:

* Enhance the hospitality experience at Eastern Market Metro Plaza;
* Encourage increased patronage of neighborhood businesses; and
* Provide information about community events and organizations.

Please join us at the North Hall tonight o discuss the project, review the concept proposals, and provide your comments for this community project.
