Could you do some investigating on the big empty holes in the ground (surrounded by orange fencing) in front of Giant and Sticky Fingers on Park Road? They have become make-shift trash dumps. They appear to be designed as future flower beds or something but for now, they are complete eyesores.”
I think they are supposed to plant trees there. But you can find all sorts of great information on the Columbia Heights Streetscape Web site here. It lists all the projects and the time lines. Really a must visit Web site for those that live in the area or are just curious about the project.
