DCBIA’s 28th Annual Community Improvement Day promises to improve on our efforts last year to a major community asset for DC residents and a bonding experience for DCBIA volunteers. With natural resources to rival any riparian area in DC, Oxon Run Park also features trails, basketball courts, horseshoe pits, an amphitheater, picnic shelters, pedestrian bridges, and playgrounds in Congress Heights near the THEARC. From years of deferred maintenance and a growing number of visitors, the park has been in need of general repair and community-led programming. Last spring and summer, DCBIA architects met with community members to plan for the 2019 Community Improvement Day which was held on Saturday, September 21. Improvements in 2019 included adding gathering and socialization, building spaces to congregate and hold performances, sensory stimulation, beauty enhancements, and general landscaping.

We are gathering ideas from community members, designers, general contractors, DC government agencies, and other community stakeholders for this year’s improvements. Want to be part of the planning before the big day? Send an email to committees@dcbia.org to join our committee. Must be a DCBIA member to participate in committee meetings. Check here {add membership directory list] to see if your company is a member.
