While it was first announced in April 2013 that $200,000 of improvements would be made at the Bruce-Monroe Park at Georgia Avenue and Irving Street, NW, … when the promised delivery date of December 2013 came and went there concern arose in the neighborhood that this project would not be completed. Residents in partnership with ANC1B, the Georgia Avenue Community Development Task Force, and eventually ANC1A began working together to get the shade structure, two drinking fountains, and additional seating installed that the money was programmed to provide.

Finally, it looks like the project is moving forward again. A week ago a general contractor was selected for the project and the shade structure, benches and water fountains have been ordered. Currently, the projected completion date is scheduled for the end of July/beginning of August.

    This is good news. I’m glad they’re finally moving. Just curious, why do you have the word “park” in scare quotes in the title?
