Eisenhower East Small Area Plan 2019 Update
The 2003 Eisenhower East SAP established a vision for a vibrant new, urban, mixed-use community centered on the Eisenhower Avenue Metro Station. This new transit-focused neighborhood would include a variety of natural and urban open spaces and parks, a balance of jobs and housing, and a retail/entertainment center, serving both a local and regional market. The 2019 Update will consider potential changes consistent with the established vision. Background and meeting information can be found at
