City invites ideas on redoing area around Anacostia Metro stop

The District is seeking ideas for redoing the area around the Anacostia Metro station.

The city will hold a design charrette on Feb. 13 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. and on Feb. 15 from 12:30 to 2 p.m. at Matthews Memorial Baptist Church.

The charrette, according to a news release, is aimed at “designing a public space that connects the Metro station to neighborhood assets, makes the area safer for pedestrians and bicyclists, better manages local stormwater and complements upcoming economic development projects in the community.”

The District is one of five cities that received technical design assistance from the Environmental Protection Agency’s Greening America’s Capitals programs. The goal is to try to enhance pedestrian/bicycle safety in the public spaces surrounding the Anacostia Metro stop.
