Thanks to all who sent emails about the future of the old Hebrew Home on Spring Road:

“Please find below an invitation to voice your input directly to D.C. government officials regarding the proposal from D.C. General Services and D.C. Housing Authority to renovate the former Hebrew Home (1125 Spring Rd NW – large vacant historic building on Spring Street between 10th and 13th Streets. Next to Raymond Recreation Center and Education Campus) into 80-90 affordable/workforce housing units. Commissioner Galloway (Ward4C06) has arranged this meeting for the community to ensure all of us most directly impacted by this development can voice our suggestions, concerns, etc… directly to those considering a way forward (Thanks Commissioner Galloway!).

At the May 14th ANC Ward 4C meeting it was emphasized that the proposal is still in the very early phases, and thus our input could absolutely make a difference in the direction of the project. Some community members voiced concern that the original proposal of converting the building into senior housing was no longer on the table to which the D.C. General Services representative offered that it doesn’t necessarily have to be off the table. The point being that it’s a great time to give your thoughts on how D.C. should move forward with this property. I hope you can join. Please share with others who will be impacted by this development.”
