about us

Pennsylvania Avenue East Economic Development Committee (PennAvEEDC)

about us

PennAvEEDC was formed as a result of a Penn Branch Living Room chat series focused on neighborhood and community improvement. The committee consists of residents from nearby neighborhoods communities such as Dupont Park, Fairlawn, Fairfax Village, Fort Davis, Hillcrest, Penn Branch, and Randle Highlands. The members bring years of knowledge of the area’s history and are personally invested and dedicated to seeing long-overdue development in our community realized. Meetings to date have focused on familiarizing ourselves with the city's plans for and funding of development in Ward 7, prioritizing which key development sites to address and shaping our vision for a revitalized community. We've also engaged city representatives about the potential and challenges of economic development in our community.
