magnificent vision for Rosslyn

The Pre-RTA Draft Rosslyn Plan Framework has been released!  It offers a magnificent vision for Rosslyn.  The vision is formulated in six vision principles:
  1. Rosslyn will be accessible via unparalleled transportation connections and choices.
  2. Rosslyn will be a global destination with its dynamic skyline, unique vistas, and exceptional value.
  3. Rosslyn will be a walkable neighborhood connecting people with community and choices.
  4. Rosslyn will be a good neighbor that relates to adjacent communities.
  5. Rosslyn will be an urban district that celebrates its connections to nature.
  6. Rosslyn will be a dynamic place inspired by its unique mix of people and activity.
Imagine this:
It is a hot summer day, and Rosslyn’s riverfront is alive with activity. A woman steadies her canoe before disembarking at the Rosslyn boat house. She is looking forward to the cooling breeze during her short bike ride up to the Esplanade where her friends are meeting her for lunch. From the restaurant terrace, they will contemplate whether to head over to Gateway Park to ensure good seats for the concert that afternoon or just stay and enjoy the view. 
Rosslyn is great right now, but Rosslyn will be even greater. Stay abreast of the process and schedule for ongoing Rosslyn planning.
