Goings on…..

I noted this when i heard the proposal and WAMU is now covering it. The Black Family Reunion mural at the corner of Florida and U Streetwill disappear behind a 6 story building later this year. It’s been there for 25 years: http://wamu.org/programs/metro_connection

Here is a concept that AARP has been pushing in DC and looks like Mt Vernon is implementing. The concept of a Village has been used to raise children (thanks Hillary), now they are taking it to the other end of aging. The Village idea lets people in a given area share resources or ideas and look after each other. Check it out: http://lifein.mvsna.org/index.cfm/2012/2/7/A-Mount-Vernon-Square-Village

The Park Service is having a meeting tonite (Feb 22) on the future of the Carter G Woodson building on 9th just south of Rhode Island. I am hoping they come up with a plan appropriate to the future growth in the neighborhood:  http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/umACs/~3/rcyd_FCVT5A/tonight-nps-woodson-site-public-meeting.html
