Here’s an Opportunity to Get Involved and Help Shape the Long-Term Use of the Former Bruce-Monroe School Site

Bruce Monroe Park will receive $200,000 for improvements in 2012.

Bruce Monroe Park today.

At the February meeting of ANC 1A, the Commission voted in favor of forming a task force to examine the issues related to the long-term use of the former Bruce-Monroe School site at Georgia Avenue btween Irving Street and Columbia Road.

The first meeting has been scheduled for Thursday, March 13th, at 7 p.m. in the meeting room of the 3232 Georgia Avenue Apartments (entrance on Lamont St.).

The overall goal of the task force will be to discuss potential long-term uses of the property and, hopefully, make a recommendation to both ANC 1A and ANC 1B in the fall on that subject should there be community consensus.

The park currently on the site is still designated as a temporary feature. Whether the entire property remains a park, or becomes a mix of public park and some other use, it is important that the property find a permanent use before significant improvements can be undertaken.

Participation in the task force is open to all, especially residents living nearby and/or interested in the long-term development of the lower Georgia Avenue community.

    As a mother of two little ones nearby, I would love for it to remain a park.
    I also think we really need a public indoor pool in the neighborhood. I understand that we have outdoor pools, and many love them, but we can’t swim in them 9 months a year, and frankly in the summer, it’s often not safe to be out in the full sun by the pool either.

    Washington DC is missing public indoor pools in general. Just compare the map of public indoor pools in DC (9 pools for 68 sqmiles)

    to the map of public indoor pools in Paris, France (38 pools for 40 sqmiles)

    Now, sure, the Paris ones cost upwards of €3 a visit, but have lots of free and reduced access too.

      Huh, the link for the DC indoor pools is cut, and without the portion of link after “AND”, the link shows all facilities, including spray parks and outdoor pools. We have lots of spray parks.

    My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on
    several websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    video to make your point. You clearly know what youre
    talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

    Even if the frequency of one’s posting schedule is below
    that of other sites most feel that this quality you deliver is more than definitely worth the wait.

    best suited with their personality.

    The people from HR will in fact be the ones that will feel the advantages of online recruiting the most.

    Take a look at other ads inside the section you’re posting to and see if you can get
    some ideas as to common and possible ways it is possible to reword your ad.

    Sometimes perhaps the most mundane information might be
    more intriguing when worded inside a way that everybody
    clearly understands. You can transmit your activity as well as the products to several customers
