Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner Chair Bennett Hilley wrote to the local listservs about an upcoming meeting on Tuesday, March 19 from 6:30-8:00pm at the Petworth Library in the large meeting room downstairs to discuss the redevelopment of the Hebrew Home (now known as the Spring Flats development).

The Development Team for Spring Flats (1125 Spring Road NW) will be providing Ward 4 and Ward 1 community members with an update on their progress on both the senior-only housing building (the former Hebrew Home) as well as the new construction (single-family condos and multifamily building on site of former Robeson School) next month on Tuesday, March 19 from 6:30-8:00pm at the Petworth Library in the large meeting room downstairs. Since the team has now submitted their building permit and public space permits applications for approval from the City, they will be presenting updated renderings of what the development will look like ---and provide us with an updated timeline for construction.

City agencies, including the Deputy Mayor's Office for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) will also be attending the meeting in order to provide the community with an update on the ongoing work that various city agencies (DPR, DCPS, DDOT, and DGS) are making on looking at existing traffic and parking issues related to Raymond Elementary and Raymond Recreation and coming up with strategies for mitigating the impact that this new development will have on these issues in our neighborhood.

The Development Team will be distributing flyers to homes near the development in a few weeks; however, Commissioner Bundy and I wanted to go ahead and send the date out so that you could start spreading the word to neighbors who may not be on the listservs/put this meeting on your calendars.
