In November of 2005, the District of Columbia, in conjunction with the Barry Farm Advisory Committee, initiated a public planning process to create a revitalization plan for their southeast community. The goal of the plan was straightforward – to create a vibrant mixed-income neighborhood near the Anacostia Metro Station, where residents have quality housing options, real economic opportunities and access to appropriate human services for children and adults.
Shaped by the residents, community stakeholders, city agencies, and public officials this vision for the future aims to protect and expand affordable housing, empower families with the tools to become self-sufficient, and preserve existing community assets and provide for those that are needed. This walkable, transit-oriented neighborhood is at the heart of a series of planned developments which will transform Anacostia. Eliminating the neighborhood’s current isolation and becoming an integral part of Anacostia’s transformation were early and important goals.
