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 The area’s outdated plans coupled with additional changes on the horizon—including plans to improve City Park, add Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) along Colfax Avenue, and new amenities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.
