Planning Congress Heights: Youth Focus Group Calling all Youth in Congress Heights!: We want to hear from you!
About this Event

OP invites community youth, ages 13 to 17, to join the DC Office of Planning (OP) to learn about urban planning issues and share their vision for the future of the Congress Heights Community. Even as important members of the community, the needs of youth are often overlooked in community development, but as future stewards of Congress Heights, it is important to get their input in the planning process.

  2. About the Congress Heights Plan - Q/A
  3. Activity 1: Photo Activity/Walk
  4. Activity 2: Chalk About It | The future of Congress Heights
