Visioning Process Overview

The Lower 8th Street SE Visioning Process Advisory Committee is coordinating a vision process with property owners and other community stakeholders along the Lower 8th Street, SE corridor. This process will be an attempt to gain consensus on a vision for the area and to address issues of height, density, mix of uses, parking and access, as well as what should be the character of a redesigned Virginia Avenue Park as an amenity or community benefit for the Capitol Riverfront neighborhood and Capitol Hill. If consensus can be reached on the vision, it could serve as the basis for asking the Office of Planning to develop a small area neighborhood plan that could then be used as justification for any agreed upon zoning or density changes.

The public will be offered a number of opportunities to participate in the visioning process that include:
  • Participate in the Community-wide Input Meetings in October, November, December and January 2010. Check back here soon for exact dates and details.
  • Speak with a member of the Advisory Committee (see roster on right side of blog).
  • Provide us your comments using this blog or feel free to share your ideas and concerns or provide feedback by emailing us at Your comments, questions or concerns will be reviewed by the Advisory Group.
