Mid City East Small Area Plan

March - November 2013
Approximately 150

The Mid City East initiative was a joint effort between the Office of Planning (OP) and District Department of Transportation (DDOT) to holistically plan for the future of the DC communities of Bates-Hanover, Bloomingdale, Eckington, (portions of) Edgewood, LeDroit Park, Sursum Corda, and Truxton Circle. OP and DDOT teams worked with agencies, residents, property owners and businesses to realize the collective goals of the planning area and develop recommendations that will improve the quality of individual neighborhoods.

AmericaSpeaks worked with OP to create and manage the online engagement portions of the project. Working with MindMixer, an online engagement platform, AmericaSpeaks helped bring over 150 participants together online to generate over 180 ideas for the Mid City East community. The MindMixer site provided an opportunity for Mid City East residents to stay actively involved with the planning process and gave residents who weren’t able to attend public meetings the ability to make their voices heard on issues facing the community.
