DC, Federal Agencies Hold Public Meeting to Improve DC Parks


On Tuesday, the National Capital Planning Commission and partners will present the draft version of the joint CapitalSpace plan to the public. A joint initiative of NCPC, the National Park Service, and the District of Columbia Office of Planning, Capital Space is designed to create a "high-quality," unified park system in Washington DC by improving, connecting and expanding DC's park systems.

Members of the trio will give a presentation on the "six big ideas" for the District: Linking Fort Circle Parks by way of walking trails to serve as a green beltway around the District, improving public schoolyards, enhancing existing parks with more active uses, improving playfields (particularly increasing regulation sized playing fields), transforming small urban parks, and enhancing "urban natural areas" - supporting biodiversity while serving people. The plan is currently in a 60-day public comment period that concludes December 8th. The event will take place from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Public Library.

UNTIL all the defecating bums are removed, and social service orgs are banned from passing out food downtown, all this talk about "improving" the parks is nonsense.
