June 27 | 11th St Bridge Park Equitable Development Community Meeting

Save the Date! You are invited to help shape our Equitable Development Plan to ensure the 11th Street Bridge Park will be a driver of inclusive development providing opportunities for all residents in neighborhoods surrounding the park.

On Saturday June 27 you have two opportunities to join the conversation.

Morning Session: 8:30 am - noon; R.I.S.E. Demonstration Center; 2730 Martin Luther King, Jr. Ave. SE. For more information and to RSVP, click here.

Afternoon Session: 2:30 - 6 pm; 200 I Street SE. For more information and to RSVP to the afternoon session, click here.

Economic development is one of four key goals of the 11th Street Bridge Park. While the Bridge Park’s design strategies will increase the connectivity and interaction between those living on both sides of the Anacostia River, more must be done to ensure that residents living near the site will benefit on a continued basis from the success of this signature new civic space.

For more information on this work, please see our press release about the Equitable Development Task Force. If you'd like to provide volunteer support on Saturday June 27 please email We hope to see you on June 27th!
