We first started tracking developments regarding the future Ward 5 homeless shelter in February 2016. The last time we wrote about it, in April, the cities request for a zoning change at the location (1700 Rhode Island Avenue) was approved. Now that things are moving forward, the community is invited to a design meeting. From a community announcement:
Ward 5 Short-Term Family Housing Community Design Meeting Number 2
When: Wednesday August 23rd, 2017 7PM-8:30PM
Where: Brookland Middle School; 1150 Michigan Avenue, NE
Purpose: Share input on the building exterior design and landscaping, and learn how to stay involved as the project moves forward.
