Georgetown BID to Host Final Georgetown 2028 Community Forum

Tonight will mark the Georgetown Business Improvement District’s final Community Engagement Meeting, regarding its 15-year strategic plan, Georgetown 2028. At tonight’s gathering, the BID will review the elements of a Georgetown 2028 draft it has put together over the past few months.

Georgetown 2028 is a collection and eventual implementation of community ideas with the goal of improving the appeal of Georgetown. The people of Georgetown are voicing questions or concerns about what they want to revamp or restore. Ideas mentioned in Georgetown 2028’s June 2013 community forum included walking path expansion and greater public transit accessibility. There was even talk of bringing a metro stop to Georgetown University’s main campus.

Since its launch in January 2013, Georgetown 2028 has been collecting more input and support. Its task force includes the Georgetown BID as well as Georgetown residents, merchants, community leaders, restaurateurs, office tenants, architects and more. These groups recognize that, in order for Georgetown to remain competitive as a thriving commercial district, certain changes need to take place.

More specifically, people have been contributing suggestions in the fields of transportation, physical space, the economy and the environment. The BID hopes that changes in these areas will resurrect Georgetown’s former glory as a primary shopping and dining sector.

The Georgetown community is invited to attend the forum hosted by Foley & Lardner LLP (3000 K St., NW Suite 600, Washington Harbour) tonight from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. RSVP:
