Share your thoughts on draft plan by January 5
Since the first draft of the East Central Area Plan was released in early November, community members have submitted 500 comments in response. If you haven't already, we encourage you to review the draft over the next few weeks and submit your feedback by Sunday, January 5, 2020.

The end of this comment period will not be the final opportunity to participate in the planning process. Once planners begin to go through your feedback, we will update the draft plan accordingly and report back to the community.

For community groups and registered neighborhood organizations :
We understand that local groups may be waiting until after the holiday season to hold meetings to discuss the draft plan with members. East Central Area organizations that plan on submitting consolidated feedback or a member-supported statement may still do so after January 5. Please contact Senior City Planner Scott Robinson ( ) so we know when to expect your comments.

About the East Central Area Plan
The East Central Planning Area neighborhoods—Capitol Hill, North Capitol Hill, Cheesman Park, Congress Park, City Park and City Park West—contain a rich mix of amenities, jobs, and housing options, and remain among the most dynamic places in the city. The area’s outdated plans coupled with additional changes on the horizon—including plans to improve City Park, add Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) along Colfax Avenue, and new amenities such as Civic Center Transit Station and the Carla Madison Recreation Center—make East Central a top priority for engaging the community in a new plan.

The Neighborhood Planning Initiative  provides a great opportunity to establish the community’s vision for maintaining and enhancing the quality of life in these neighborhoods for decades to come.
