Livability Program Overview
Far Northeast is one of 3 multi-neighborhood areas DDOT is currently evaluating as part of its new Livability Program. The studies support not only DDOT’s desire to create more “livable” spaces for residents but also US DOT’s recent Livability Initiative which includes goals to provide more transportation choices, provide more sustainable alternatives, safer streets, and improve the quality of life and opportunity for residents.
A website is available that links to each study, provides information on the public outreach component, highlights discussions and recommendations, and allows for further interaction from the community. All three studies and future information on the larger Livability Program may be found at ddot.dc.gov. Click on the “Livability Program” icon.
