(Updated at 7:01 p.m. Sunday) The NoMa Parks Foundation wants to hear from locals about how it should design its green space.
The foundation earlier this week launched a new website called Imagine NoMa Parks, which is designed to be a platform to “share and solicit more information from residents as design on two park sites, the NoMa Green and the 3rd and L Street NE park.”
Locals will be able to share ideas and respond to questions about NoMa Green periodically on the new website. The website will also feature polls, open-ended questions, photo-sharing opportunities, and updates on the design process, according to the foundation.
“As we start designing these two parks, we want to increase our ability to exchange ideas with all the folks interested in NoMa parks,” said Robin-Eve Jasper, President of the NoMa Parks Foundation, in a statement.
“Initially, we thought that park-specific design charrettes, our Community Conversations, presentations to civic groups and the NoMa Parks Foundation website would be enough. But then we found this great extra tool for asking questions and sharing ideas and images.”
The first question in the series revolves around getting to NoMa Green and can be answered now.
