Current, former, and future residents of the Barry Farm community voted on who will be coming back to the redeveloped community at a recent meeting.

The meeting, one in a series that have been hosted by the District of Columbia Housing Authority and the city, was attended by residents of the Barry Farm community who moved out on or after October 2012 or are still on the property. After hearing updates on the redevelopment plans, they were given stickers to determine the order of how they think people should be allowed to return, such as senior citizens or those who moved off the property last.

Plans for the future of Barry Farm include a two-acre park, retail space, and up to 1,400 units that will include one-for-one replacement of public housing, affordable, and market rate housing.
