Roughly half of the city’s industrially-zoned property is located in Ward 5 and much of it is centered in the New York Avenue NE Future Planning Analysis Area. For too long, residents of this area have had to endure the ill effects of adjacent industrial activity and accompanying poverty, unemployment, and economic distress. As the DC Office of Planning embarks on planning for new commercial and residential growth in this area, meeting the needs of existing and long-term residents must come first.
