NoMa Launches DC's First Free Neighborhood WiFi 

It’s not just spring that’s in the air in NoMa: A brand-new, free outdoor WiFi network is also in the air and now available in many outdoor public spaces throughout the neighborhood! The NoMa BID is launching the first phase of this new service today, Wednesday, April 2, and additional phases are planned. As the first neighborhood in Washington, D.C., to offer free outdoor WiFi, the NoMa BID is providing this interactive amenity to make NoMa even livelier.
To access the system, please select “NoMa Connected” from the list of wireless networks on your mobile device or laptop. Click the CLICK HERE box to agree to the Terms and Conditions. You’re connected!

First Street Construction: Final Stages

This week the First Street, NE construction crew began repaving the road, one of the final stages in the project. The prolonged, abnormally cold weather has delayed the end of this project to May 2014. Keep your eyes peeled for the date of an outdoor party to celebrate the completion of this year-long construction!
When reconstruction ends, First Street, NE will feature rebuilt sidewalks from G Street to New York Avenue, upgraded underground infrastructure, stormwater catch basins, enlarged tree boxes, new crosswalks and street lamps, and improved public spaces. For more information about this project please contact NoMa BID Director of Operations, Thomas Taylor, at, or DDOT Project Manager Abdullahi Mohamed at
