The Kingman Island and Heritage Island Planning and Feasibility Study is a draft report that assesses the feasibility and cost of developing, maintaining, and managing a state-of-the-art nature center and other possible structures and uses of the islands consistent with the National Children's Island Act of 1995, the Anacostia Waterfront Framework Plan, and the Comprehensive Plan. This report proposes uses of the Islands for recreational, environmental, and educational purposes.
In collaboration with DOEE, Hickok Cole Architects and partners have developed this draft proposal that presents a vision for enhancing the islands as a unique educational and recreational asset for children and residents of the District, an oasis in the city that will protect critical habitats and species representing the District, and work towards the goals of a healthy restored Anacostia River and an engaged community.
DOEE continues to engage stakeholders and the public for feedback towards the final report.
