The Southwest Ecodistrict: Creating a National Showcase of Sustainability (CM | 1.5)
June 22, 2012 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
The National Capital Planning Commission, the federal government’s regional planning agency, in conjunction with federal and local partners is developing a bold new vision for Southwest Washington. Learn how NCPC and the city proposes to transform a staid mid-century federal office precinct – merely steps from the National Mall – into a vibrant livable community and showcase of sustainability. The SW Ecodistrict Initiative addresses how land use, transportation, and infrastructure planning at a district-scale achieves greater sustainability than at the individual building scale and how we can capture, manage, and reuse a majority of the energy, water, and waste within the area.
