About this Event

** Due to the overwhelming interest in the event and limited capacity of the venue, we have created a waitlist for the event. Those on the waitlist will be notified by Thursday, September 19th if any spots open up for the event.

The Bowser Administration, led by the DC Office of Planning (OP) and DC Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), invites you to join a Community Conversation Saturday, September 21st from 1pm-3pm at Ron Brown High School. Doors open at 12:30pm.

We are excited to discuss the Mayor’s bold goal to build 36,000 new residential units by 2025, our plan to get there through the Housing Framework for Equity and Growth and hear from you about your vision for the District’s housing goals.

This Community Conversation will be an opportunity for residents and organizations to learn about the Housing Framework for Equity and Growth, hear about our work over the summer, and engage with our findings from listening and surveying residents across the District.
