Anacostia Waterfront Initiative, 10 Years of Progress

Anacostia Waterfront Initiative, 10 Years of Progress

Ratings: (0)|Views: 516 |Likes:
An unprecedented commitment to the Waterfront Revitalization Endeavor was made by the Government of the District of Columbia, four local quasigovernmental corporations, and fourteen federal agencies in March 2000, when these entities executed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to restore and revitalize the Anacostia River and its waterfronts.

Ten years later, the vision for transforming Washington’s waterfronts has taken shape and is on course to accomplishing the ultimate goal: a vibrant mix of natural and neighborhood assets along a clean Anacostia River and preservation of our natural resources for the benefit and enjoyment of residents and visitors.

This ten-year summary of progress seeks to capture the strategies that have been established and advances made in implementing the Waterfront Revitalization Endeavor, now known as the Anacostia Waterfront Initiative (AWI). This document follows the organization and agenda established in the AWI Framework Plan, published in 2003.

2010
, the rebirthof Washington as a sustainable, waterfront city isbecoming a reality and there are numerous examplesof signicant progress that should be recognizedand celebrated.The actions the District has taken and obstacles wehave faced in implementing the Anacostia WaterfrontInitiative are of national interest for cities acrossthe country that seek to recapture under-utilizedproperties along their waterfronts. This summary of progress attempts to capture the execution strategieswe implemented, as well as highlight lessons welearned during the past decade.More important than sharing the District’s experiencein waterfront revitalization with our sister cities,however, is communicating with the residentsof Washington about the progress made towardimproving their communities and the environmentin the District of Columbia. While seemingly slow,and sometimes contentious, tremendous investmentshave been made and strides taken to realize our sharedvision of a vibrant Anacostia waterfront.More than $
