DC BIDs in Georgetown, Mt. Vernon Triangle and Capitol Hill honored for "downtown achievement"

The International Downtown Association has recognized the business improvement districts in Georgetown and Capitol Hill as well as the "community improvement district" in Mount Vernon Triangle for innovations that have improved their sections of the city.

The IDA awards "recognize...outstanding improvements to downtown by the work of dedicated individuals around the globe."

The MVT CID earned nods for its improvements to K Street over a 10-year period, improving pedestrian access and adding green space, planters, trees, and places to sit. It was also recognized for its marketing campaign.

Capitol Hill's "Ready, Willing and Working" program, which hires returning citizens as well as formerly homeless citizens to clean the streets, also earned recognition. The program employs 22 people, provides services like GED tutoring, and keeps Capitol Hill (and, through contracts, Adams Morgan and Brookland) sparkly clean.

Finally, Georgetown BID was recognized for its ambitious "Georgetown 2028" master plan, which as you may remember included such fanciful ideas as a gondola to Rosslyn (which would, um, be amazing).

Thanks, IDA!
