Just a reminder that the National Park Service is holding a public scoping meeting on the Anacostia Park Management Plan / Environmental Assessment on Wednesday, March 27, 2013, from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at the Smithsonian’s Anacostia Community Museum, located at 1901 Fort Place, SE, Washington, D.C. I encourage you to get involved with the planning process and submit your ideas and thoughts for a vibrant park. You can attend the upcoming scoping meeting or other meetings throughout the process, and add your voice to the planning for Anacostia Park.

The public is invited to visit at any point during the scheduled time to review materials and provide comments. The museum welcomes the public to view the exhibition, Reclaiming the Edge: Urban Waterways and Civic Engagement, which explores the history, public use, and attitudes toward the Anacostia River and its watershed.
