The National Park Service (NPS) plans to hold its first public meeting on the design of Buzzard Point Park at the Southwest Neighborhood Library (900 Wesley Pl. SW) on July 14 at 6:30 p.m. (Note: the meeting was originally scheduled to take place this Thursday but was moved to a new date, according to D.C. Councilmember Charles Allen.)
Members of the public will be able to share their thoughts and ideas on the future of the park, according to the NPS website. Attendees will also be able to learn about the history of the park during the meeting.
“Whether you live or work nearby, boat or paddle on the river, have an interest in local projects, or love your neighborhood national parks, stop by and share your ideas,” the meeting notice reads.
Locals who can’t make the meeting can also submit comments online or by mailing a letter to the government agency.
