Town Hall Meeting on Walter Reed Redevelopment

WASHINGTON - D.C. officials are unveiling plans Thursday to redevelop the Walter Reed Army Medical Center, the Army's flagship hospital. Next year, patients and staff will be moved to either the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda or a new hospital under construction at Fort Belvoir in Fairfax County. That will leave more than 100 acres of land and dozens of buildings ripe for development. The District's Office of Planning and Economic Development is rolling out proposals for new housing, retail, parks and schools in a town hall meeting at Delano Hall on the grounds of Walter Reed at 7 p.m. Thursday. The proposals include shops, residential housing, a Chinese language school, a health clinic, facilities for the homeless and lots of open park space. SOURCE:FOX
