Shaw Main Streets Annual Community Forum

Feeling like your neighborhood blogger's been slack in updating you about neighborhood development? Then don't miss Shaw Main Streets' fifth annual Community Forum on Development Projects tomorrow night. Here are the details from Alex Padro of Shaw Main Streets:
Shaw Main Streets will present its fifth annual Community Forum on Development Projects on Tuesday, September 23, 2008 at 6:30 PM in the Executive Orders area at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, 801 Mount Vernon Place, NW. Developers with major projects planned or underway in central Shaw will present their plans or update the community on the status of their endeavors with illustrated PowerPoint presentations. This is also an opportunity to ask developers questions about their activities in the neighborhood and how their projects will benefit the community. Developers invited include Marriott Hotels (Marriott Marquis Convention Center), Douglas Development (600 block of New York Avenue, NW and Wonder Bread Factory), Banneker Ventures (700 block of Florida Avenue, NW), Roadside Development (City Market at O), Broadcast Center Partners (Broadcast Center One), Howard Theatre Restoration (Howard Theatre), and Hines Interests (City Center). SMS will also announce the latest results of the annual survey of new business development preferences for the neighborhood. This event is free and open to the public, and no reservations are required. For more information, call SMS at 202-265-SHAW or visit
Sounds great!

Anon - I hope to; these types of meetings thrill me. Unfortunately it's usually tough for me to break free of work in time to make 6:30 meetings.
