When new development or rehabilitation projects arise in Historic Anacostia, HAPS engages with members of our community, civic leaders, government officials, and developers to provide valuable input on how to best align their design with the tenets of historic preservation in the Anacostia Historic District.


HAPS champions historic preservation by providing comments on the proposed designs, materials, massing, inter alia, to ensure compatibility with the Anacostia Historic District's unique character.
