Ongoing Public Engagement

The NoMa Parks Foundation is committed to carrying out the vision expressed in the NoMa Public Realm Design Plan. That Plan, however, is conceptual and there will continually be a need for community engagement in order to refine and implement each of the NoMa park projects. To that end, the NoMa Parks Foundation is committed to the following plan for ongoing community engagement.

General:
At least three times each year, the NoMa Parks Foundation will hold a public meeting – called Community Conversations – to provide general updates on NoMa Parks progress and receive community feedback. The next Community Conversation will be held on August 9, 2017.

Project-specific Community Engagement:
Each of the design contracts for NoMa parks includes community meetings as a design team requirement during the schematic design process.

Additionally, the NoMa Parks Foundation looks forward to opportunities to regularly provide web-based information and receive online feedback.

Annual Report:
The NoMa Parks Foundation will publish an Annual Report outlining its activities during the prior year.  Click here to view the 2014 Annual Report.

Report to Advisory Neighborhood Commissions:
The NoMa Parks Foundation will provide reports to local Advisory Neighborhood Commissions (ANCs), their committees, and local neighborhood and civic associations. Requests to schedule such reports should be directed to Stacie West, Director of Parks Projects, at [email protected].
