The 146-page document, which the District Office of Planning released in November, features a variety of recommendations. In addition to suggestions to construct a new library and attract more retailers and arts and cultural events, the plan calls for the creation of affordable housing and the redesigning of local parks.
Councilman Charles Allen of Ward 6, who helped shepherd the resolution through the Council, said the Southwest Neighborhood Plan will help “focus investments where they’re most needed.”
“Southwest is a unique and special part of our city, and is facing enormous change in the coming years,” he said in a statement.
