The District of Columbia's proposal to revitalize a long-neglected section of its �Near Southeast� waterfront area could produce substantial development, which could lead to the issuance of municipal bonds. They emphasize that it is unclear at this point how much municipal bond financing might be involved, saying it is still very early in the planning process and that many of the proposed developments have yet to be approved. They have been highlighting the draft plan, called the �Urban Design Framework for the Near Southeast,� which incorporates various planned and proposed developments through the neighborhood, at a series of public meetings.
