Here’s an Opportunity to Get Involved and Help Shape the Long-Term Use of the Former Bruce-Monroe School Site
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.Explore posts in the same categories: Community Involvement, Development, Parks and Green spaces comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
