Last week the National Capital Planning Commission in conjunction with the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts released their National Capital Framework Plan, which hopes to invigorate areas adjacent to the National Mall. Here's a link to the plan. A major portion of the plan deals with the Southwest Federal Center area, including L'Enfant Plaza and Banneker Overlook. Another component of the plan deals with East Potomac Park. I'll write in more detail about these components of the plan over the next couple of days.
