Jelleff Community Center Survey

Make your voice heard!

Jelleff Community Center, managed by the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Washington on behalf of the District’s Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR), is located at the edge of Georgetown at the intersection of S Street and Wisconsin Avenue, NW (in Ward 2).

Jelleff was constructed in the early 1950s, is badly out of date, and urgently needs new facilities and new ways of using the site to serve more members of the community.  After a feasibility study for its renovation was completed in 2021, the DC Council approved $28 million for this important project.

DPR is deciding right now whether to renovate and expand parts of the old building or to construct a completely new building. DPR is also considering which programs and amenities to offer after renovation or construction for both inside the Center (e.g., basketball courts and meeting rooms) and outside the Center (e.g., the pool and baseball field).

The next community meeting is scheduled for July 11th at 6:30pm at the Georgetown Public Library.  We are working on a virtual option.

We would like to survey the community so that we can present data at the community meeting about what is important to current and prospective users.

Please take four minutes out of your day and take this short survey. It matters.
