Nadeau Requests Ward 1 Investments in Next Budget

Councilmember Nadeau submitted the first of two budget letters to the Mayor with requests that she include funding for various Ward 1 projects and laws that impact the ward. They include funding for safety improvements, a library, recreation center improvements, and implementation of the street vendor and domestic worker rights laws.

The Councilmember will submit a second budget letter soon with requests for citywide programs she’d like to see the Mayor include in her budget. 

The Mayor will submit her proposed 2023-24 budget to the Council on March 22, after which the Council will hold numerous hearings, take public feedback, ask executive agencies to explain how they will use their budgets, and make revisions and vote on a final budget, likely in late May.


I look forward to collaborating with the Office of Planning, neighbors, and local institutions to create a new community landmark we can all be proud of, one that will add density to the site, contribute to the shortage of affordable housing in this part of Ward 1 and provide new public amenities to help restore the vibrancy of this end of the U Street Corridor.
“The Council has gone through yet another budget process while the commission has sat on its hands.”
