Plan updates

The Planning Commission adopted the Dorothy I. Height (formerly John Eager Howard) Elementary School INSPIRE Plan on January 12, 2017. Download the INSPIRE Plan here.

Between August 2014 and October 2016, Department of Planning staff worked with members of the school and neighborhood communities to better understand their neighborhood experiences, concerns, and needs. Through community workshops, surveys, and walking tours, stakeholders have helped inform the recommendations presented here. Feedback from over 250 residents and stakeholders informed the plan.

Learn more about the German Park Improvements that served as the plan's community project.
