In reviewing DPW’s 2018 leaf collection guide, the first round of leaf collection in Park View will begin the week of November 19th — provided that leaves are raked into the treebox space this Sunday (Nov. 18th). More information is available at the DPW Website and you can also track the progress of DPW’s leaf collection crews throughout the collection period.

The maps and schedule below can also be useful.

After nearly two and a half years of planning and construction, the recent renovations at the Bruce-Monroe at Park View School are completed with only smaller punch list items left to finish. The scope of work included a new parking lot, a sprinkler system for the school, exterior landscaping, a new gymnasium and a new cafeteria & kitchen.

Last night, I had a chance to see some of the new spaces inside the building following the final School Improvement Team meeting. Below are some photos of the new gym, cafeteria, and kitchen.

DDOT has been working on plans to install protected bike lanes on Park Place, Warder Street, and the 400 block of Kenyon St. as part of their implementation of the Crosstown Multimodal Transportation effort. These bike lanes would connect Park View to Brookland by expanding the current bike lane network.

In collaboration with ANC1A, DDOT will be the featured guest at the Wednesday, November 7th Park View UNC meeting where they will provide an overview of the project and be available for questions and feedback on their current proposal. Among the ideas that DDOT is considering is additional on-street parking on Park Place and tree bump outs on Warder Street.

Volunteers can relax at the picnic tables, enjoying food, conversation and the beautiful, early November foliage.

Nearly four years in the making, the development approved for 3619 Georgia Avenue has finally progressed to the point where we’ll start to see  a building rise above grade. Below is a photo of the current state of construction.

(Fish in the Hood, a long-time beloved restaurant, is back open for business. Located at Georgia Avenue and Otis Place, NW)

Fish in the Hood reopened quietly on Wednesday, October 24th, and I’m happy to report the community response was immediate. They plan to be open on Monday through Saturday from 11:30 am to 9:00 pm (perhaps a bit later on Friday evenings). As before, Fish in the Hood will not have regular Sunday business hours.

Fish in the Hood closed due to a fire that occurred on April 14, 2017. Owner Bill White has been working to repair the damage and reopen since day one.

So check out this great local business and welcome them back to the neighborhood!

(Fish in the Hood’s counters are stocked and ready for customers.)

According to a Tweet by Kevin Donahue, Deputy Mayor for Public Safety and Justice, Police Chief Peter Newsham discussed the planned police district boundary changes that will go in effect in January with Mayor Bowser and the Council of the District of Columbia at their breakfast on Tuesday, October 24th. In looking at the images Donahue shares, for Park View the area bordered by Columbia Road, Sherman Avenue, Park Place, and Park Road would move from the Third District to the Fourth District. See below.

Another big change is that Mount Pleasant would be moved from the Fourth District to the Third District.

You can see all the maps shared by Donahue at his Tweet below:
