Cleveland Park Comprehensive Plan Proposed Amendments Survey
Over the past decade, Washington, D.C. has changed and grown substantially. New neighborhoods have blossomed and many old neighborhoods have been revitalized. Cleveland Park has also changed. We've retained our unique neighborhood vibe, but lost many beloved businesses, including Ripple, Palena, Dino, the Four P’s, Magruder’s, Guitar Gallery, and Potomac River Running, among others. Simultaneously, new neighborhoods throughout the city have become destinations similar to what Cleveland Park once was.

As has been noted through both community discourse and professional studies and analyses, there is no one magic bullet for revitalization and survival of our beloved Cleveland Park commercial corridor. Residents of Cleveland Park should have a significant voice in the future of our community, and fortunately, we have that opportunity now. The District is providing residents with the chance to offer amendments to its Comprehensive Plan, a document that guides planning and development in the District.

With the opportunity to take advantage of the Comprehensive Plan amendment process, which last took place seven years ago, several residents have come together to offer feedback and ideas as to elements of a possible long-term solution to Cleveland Park's challenges. The District's Office of Planning (OP) will review any submitted proposals over the course of the summer and will create a forum for additional community feedback this fall.

In advance of the city-sponsored community feedback period and of any submissions to OP, and with an eye to the future to build on our neighborhood's historic past, we respectfully request your time in reviewing and providing feedback and consideration on the following proposals. Amendments must be submitted no later than next Friday, June 23rd, so your timely response is greatly appreciated.

The three proposals include:
- A DDOT study of the rush hour reversible lanes on Connecticut Avenue
- Cleveland Park Business Corridor Density
- Cleveland Park East Residential Density

We all have a role to play in making Cleveland Park the vibrant destination it once was, and we appreciate your engagement in kick-starting needed conversations between the community and the District.

These proposals do not implicate the service lane or Cleveland Park Streetscape Project. That project is ongoing, with information available at https://ddot.dc.gov/page/cleveland-park-streetscape-and-drainage-improvement. In addition, DDOT will be at the ANC 3C meeting on Monday, June 19 at 7:30 pm at 3320 Idaho Ave NW to discuss the streetscape project.

Thank you for your consideration and feedback,
Beau Finley, Emma Hersh, Susie Taylor, and Bob Ward
