For the past decade, Barracks Row Main Street has worked tirelessly to preserve and enhance Capitol Hill’s historic 8th Street, SE, commercial corridor and to revitalize its business community.
The group’s focus is the five blocks of 8th Street that stretch south from Pennsylvania Ave S.E. to the terminus of 8th Street at the Washington Navy Yard along M Street, S.E.
Barracks Row is located eight blocks east of the U.S. Capitol.

The interactive website for the Eastern Market Metro Plaza website was updated earlier today: www.easternmarketmetropark.org
The project website is fully interactive with four ways to provide feedback, including a transportation survey. The updated site is an easy, user friendly way to learn about the project and to send comments.
You can even comment directly on the designs for two different Master Plans via "sticky notes" which can be created and dropped wherever your comment applies. A Transportation Survey is available to record your feedback on a number of pedestrian safety issues coming out of earlier community meetings. The entire power point presentation made to the community in December is on the site for review.
You can also comment by going to the project blog from the website; plus, by going to the Archives tab you can access all the past comment history. The comment period will be open until mid-January.
The comments from the community will be used by the Eastern Market Metro Park Task Force to direct the design team in the next phase of design development.
Barracks Row Main Street is a designated DC Main Streets commercial district. Barracks Row Main Street is funded in part by the Department of Small and Local Business Development.
