The collection, Community Documentation: George Washington University Students Metro Project, contains video recordings of presentations given by George Washington University graduate students on the Metro alignment in Southeast Washington. The students' project involved planning for the opening of the Branch Avenue Metro (then scheduled to open in 1978) by working with the community to make adjustments to the existing transit plan, including implementing bus routes that would feed into the metro system and planning for economic development around the Metro.
Summary:
Graduate students from the Urban Regional Study Department of George Washington University present their research findings and recommendations regarding D.C. metro expansion and revitalization to the Anacostia community. Their studies and presentation consist of current transportation options and proposed metro stop options within Anacostia; regional impact study, including potential tax revenue, traffic flow, and environmental impact; potential for economic development, including current commercial and parking situation; commercial feasibility study, including discussions on zoning and commercial development; revitalization of Cedar Hill and Anacostia, and impact of metro stop near Frederick Douglass Home; and potential development around Frederick Douglass Home. During and after presentations, Anacostia community members ask questions and address their concerns. They also discuss ways to use the research to persuade metro (WMATA) to change metro line which currently goes out to Suitland Parkway.
