September/October 2010 Pleasant Plains Neighborhood Network News Now Available

October 5, 2010

The latest issue of the Pleasant Plains Neighborhood Network News has two items that will be of particular interest to Park View residents.

The first items is the subject of the new community garden at Bruce Monroe Park. According to the newsletter, a “garden design meeting on Sept. 21 resulted in a design concept for the space. The draft design will be circulated to the community when it is completed.”

The second item of particular interest is the resumption of activities on the Georgia Avenue/Pleasant Plains Heritage Trail. While the newsletter claims that the trail’s focus is “to preserve the history of the Pleasant
Plains neighborhood, focusing on Georgia Ave. between
the Shaw and the Petworth Metro Stations,” it includes signs relevant to other neighborhoods too.

The first three or four signs are actually in Shaw and include topics such as the Howard Theater and the 1968 riots.

The final four markers (16-19) are in Park View and highlights some of our neighborhood’s history. Among subjects included are the Tenth Precinct Building, the Park Morton development, and the York Theater.

Outside of these two items, readers may find much more of interest in the newsletter, but I wanted to pull these out to make sure they weren’t missed.
