CapitalSpace - Ideas to Achieve the Full Potential of Washington's Parks and Open Space
CapitalSpace is the first comprehensive analysis of Washington, DC's parks and open spaces in 40 years. It provides recommendations for six types of capital parks to coordinate their planning and management; attract resources for improvement and upkeep; expand public access; build community stewardship; and enhance the city's environmental sustainability. It was produced in cooperation with the National Park Service and several DC agencies.
The CapitalSpace partners believe this final document is a better plan because of the public comments we received from more than 40 civic leaders, organizations, and individuals. The National Capital Planning Commission adopted the final CapitalSpace Plan on April 1, 2010. Partner organizations continue to work with partnering agencies to implement the plan's recommendations. Civic leaders, organizations, and individuals helped shape the plan through comments and opinions shared during the plan's development.
