The NoMa Parks Foundation has extended the deadline to propose names for two parks in the neighborhood. Through Friday, September 1, the NoMa Parks Foundation is seeking community input to name the 2.5-acre green space north of New York Avenue and a smaller park at 3rd and L streets NE. Neighbors and community members are encouraged to propose names via the Foundation’s engagement website, ImagineNoMaParks.com:
Suggested names will be narrowed to four or five options, then released again for a final community vote. The final selections will be recommended to the D.C. Council and Mayor Muriel Bowser, who will make the ultimate decision. Thank you for your participation!
