Letter to DMPED and DCHA regarding "Build First" at Greenleaf Public Housing (October 12, 2018) The Near SE/SW Community Benefits Coordinating Committee (CBCC) is extremely grateful that the District is committed to a “Build First” strategy to ensure that current Greenleaf residents can stay in their community in Southwest rather than be displaced as a result of Greenleaf redevelopment. However, CBCC is concerned about the slow pace of the project, as well as the proper maintenance of current Greenleaf units as the redevelopment process drags on.
With the opening of the Wharf, the CBCC submitted a Letter to the Editor at the Southwester regarding traffic and parking issues in SW DC.

This analysis reflects both CBCC's newly-adopted principles for redevelopment and identifies components and direction that should guide DMPED's negotiations.
