“The National Park Service (NPS) invites D.C. residents to a community discussion about the future of Fort Reno Park”

From an email:

“The National Park Service (NPS) invites D.C. residents to a community discussion Saturday, September 7th from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm in the Wilson High School Auditorium about the future of Fort Reno Park, at which they will outline plans for various initiatives slated for the coming year.

They will also hold breakout sessions on opportunities for education and interpretation (wayfinders, signs, elements to bring out the history) in the park, recreation and programming (concerts, lectures, etc.) and upkeep, maintenance and site safety.

The senior staff for NPS in the Rock Creek area covering Fort Reno will be there to present at the general sessions and listen to community input at the breakout sessions and throughout.

The morning will start with bagels and coffee and then move into the NPS presentation (likely around 10) and then in to the breakout sessions and then a process of reporting back to the broader group and closing discussion.

NPS manages the park pursuant to the Fort Circle Parks Management Plan that places acute importance on preserving green space and showcasing the history. The park is a gem in our community. The NPS initiative to hear from the community about ideas for the park that could be consistent with its management plan is a very positive development and opportunity.

Consider coming out to learn about NPS plans and be a part of this important discussion.”
