With Spring, Haikus Sprout in Golden Triangle BID

March 21, 2016

Here are some of the many Haikus currently posted around the Golden Triangle Business Improvement District. These examples are found on K Street. I like how the Golden Triangle BID finds creative ways to make the area interesting — something that a Georgia Avenue Main Streets should consider when one is established.




Checking out the Golden Triangle’s Haiku Project

haikumapfinalIf you happen to find yourself in the Golden Triangle Business Improvement District, you’ll probably have seen their Golden Haiku project in many of the tree boxes. I’ve long been interested in how Business Improvement Districts add value to commercial districts, and have often wondered why we don’t have one on 14th Street in Columbia Heights. I think Georgia Avenue would benefit from one too, but I don’t think Georgia have the businesses to support one yet.

But back to the Golden Triangle area … this winter, the Golden Triangle BID The Golden has installed 60 haikus in tree boxes all over their district. The map above gives an indication of the area included in this project. Below are photos of four haikus from the 60 installed.
