NoMa BID Names Elizabeth Price President
The NoMA BID’s new President holds a Master’s degree from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University. She earned her B.A. degree with highest honors at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
“Ms. Price brings expertise in managing large-scale public/private development projects, a deep understanding of the public sector, and a reputation for working collaboratively with local communities,” said Bruce Baschuk of J Street Development, Chairman of the NoMA BID Board. “She will be a tremendous asset as we move forward with development of an all-new, 24/7 mixed-use neighborhood just north of the Capitol.” Private developers are expected to invest over a billion dollars in NoMA this year alone, following the Federal government’s decision to locate the new ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms) headquarters in the heart of NoMA.
“This is a very exciting opportunity to help shape the future of one of DC’s up-and-coming neighborhoods,” said Ms. Price. “I look forward to working with the NoMA BID Board and members, the Mayor’s office, public agencies, the D.C. Council, and local communities to create a truly unique, vibrant neighborhood in the heart of Washington.”
The NoMA BID is bounded generally by Massachusetts Avenue on the south, North Capitol Street on the west, and Q and R Streets on the north; it also extends eastward just beyond the CSX/Metrorail tracks. Centrally located within the BID is the New York Avenue Metro Station, situated near the new ATF headquarters building. The BID’s office is at One NoMa Station, 131 M Street, N.E.
