Mayor Bowser to Attend Park View Community Meeting on Wednesday
According to announcements on area listservs and community meetings, Mayor Bowser is scheduled to come to the Park View United Neighborhood Coalition meeting this Wednesday, November 4th, at 7 pm (see flyer to the right and annoucement below). Questions are being requested in advance and I’m sure there will be many.
For me, my hope is that Mayor Bowser will provide answers to questions related to two key developments in the area. The first is the redevelopment of the old Hebrew Home at 1125 Spring Road. This property consumed a significant amount of community engagement from June 2014 to the end of the year. Yet, few to no details have been shared since the beginning of 2015.
The second area I hope Mayor Bowser will spend some time on are details related to the Park Morton redevelopment. The redevelopment of Park Morton will be truly transformative for the entire Park View community. However, news that this project would include a portion of the Bruce Monroe parcel was greeted by both support and opposition in the community. The meeting on Wednesday would be a great opportunity for the Mayor to speak to this issue.
The announcement from Park View UNC president Chris Waldmann follows:
The Park View United Neighborhood Coalition is excited to announce that Mayor Muriel Bowser will be attending our next meeting next Wednesday, November 4th at 7 PM at the Park View Recreation Center (693 Otis Place NW).
This will be a great opportunity to ask the mayor about issues that affect Park View and the entire city!
In order to let the mayor answer as many questions as possible during the forum, we are asking neighbors to submit their questions in advance. To submit a question please send an email to parkviewuncdc (at) gmail.com with the subject line Question for the Mayor.
Questions may be anonymous or not, that is up to you. Also, we will accept written questions at the meeting.
Spanish language translation services will be provided.
