Noma to get thousands of new residential units and a puny "Central Park" says Urban Turf
How does this connect to the "decking" of North Capitol? The community has started to plan a tiny decking between RI Ave and T St. , but a truly extensive "decking" public green space, should go from Noma to new development at AFRH, and connect to Noma metro with a monorail that serves all of North Capitol, which has no mass transit.
Huge development is coming, including at Armed Forces Retirement Home, which will add more than 30,000 automobile trips per day to congested N. Capitol. McMillan development if not defeated, "the Monstrosity on Michigan Avenue", will also increase traffic congestion by 30,000 auto trips per day. Can North Capitol handle 90,000 cars a day? Your Mayor and City Council don't care!!
Proper urban planning brings in mass transit ahead of massive development, please tell that to DC Office of "miserable " Planning.
Our city, we are the "City", not the mediocre govt. wrongly so named, our "City" must wrestle control of our future from the corruption rampant in the Wilson building. Upon sentencing for accepting bribes from the FBI, Council-member Michael Brown said "I couldn't resist the culture of corruption on the City Council". We need to fight that!
