In its 26th year, DCBIA hosts a “Community Improvement Day” to renovate a community site each fall. Preceded by months of design and community engagement meetings, teams of DCBIA members gather on different zones across the site to finalize design plans.
This year, DCBIA will renovate Keene Field in Ward 5, an open field that abuts DC Bilingual Public Charter School and Briya and Bridges Schools. The site is an open field and DCBIA continues to meet with community members to determine enhanced uses of this popular site.
Upgrades to include: Add signage, create walking path, install exercise equipment, accentuate entry points to and from the field, add shaded rest areas, add new educational signage, add portals for future community projects, replacing perimeter fence, fallen tree removal, brush clearance, replanting ground cover, repainting stripes on school parking lot, resoding of soccer field, adding basketball hoops, painting games on asphalt, earth leveling, line markers for soccer practice and games, and more!
The 2018 Design Co-Chairs are Sonal Shah, Project Manager, HOK Architects and Leon Ge, Architect, HOK Architects and General Contractor Chair: Meral Kanik, Project Engineer, Gilbane Building Company. They are currently working now through September with a team of DCBIA volunteers to prepare us for Community Improvement Day scheduled for Saturday, September 22, 2018.
