Rhode Island Avenue Great Streets Initiative

What is the Rhode Island Avenue NE/ Great Streets Initiative?

Rhode Island Avenue NE is a District of Columbia Government designated “Great Streets” corridor. The Great Streets Initiative is a multiple agency effort to transform under-invested corridors into thriving and inviting neighborhood centers using public actions and tools, as needed, to leverage new private investment.

This is an important and long-overlooked corridor that is well-positioned to gain in its importance and prominence to the District. Along with community leadership, property and business owners, residents, and other stakeholders, we invite you to take a significant step with us to develop a plan for the commercial districts along the corridor.

Can Rhode Island Avenue become the next Arts District, connecting downtown DC to the initiatives in Mt. Rainier and beyond?
