This morning, my Councilmember Muriel Bowser took time out from her busy schedule to meet with community members around the construction of Petworth Medians so they can support trees and community-maintained plantings.|
For those that are following along, New Hampshire Avenue is getting a nice brick & granite median from around Park Road all the way to Grant Circle. So far,construction is proceeding from Georgia to Grant Circle, but some in Petworth have an issue with the way it was proceeding. The medians were not being excavated to a depth that would support trees, per the original design, and plants and shrubbery, per community desires.
Muriel came out to see what the ruckus was about, and I want to thank her for her attention to this issue that is dear to my heart. I hope she shares my dream that one day, New Hampshire Avenue will be a green line of shade and beauty from Park Road to Grant Circle.
Thanks again, Muriel!
