Pennsylvania Avenue Initiative Public Workshop this Wednesday

From an email:

“Pennsylvania Avenue between the White House and the U.S. Capitol is a major symbol of our nation’s capital. However, today’s Avenue shows wear and tear from increased event uses, aging infrastructure, and jurisdictional challenges.

To develop a vision for the future of Pennsylvania Avenue, the National Capital Planning Commission, in partnership with the General Services Administration and the National Park Service, is launching the Pennsylvania Avenue Initiative. This study will help identify existing challenges as well as near- and long-term opportunities along the Avenue and vicinity. It will also identify the future role of the Avenue to meet the needs of a 21st century capital city.

This initial public workshop will provide members of the public an opportunity to learn about the initiative and provide feedback on what they view as priorities for Pennsylvania Avenue as its local and national roles continue to evolve.

  • A few years ago I attended an event held on Pennsylvania Avenue in mid-June. It was a centrally located slice of hell on earth. Here’s hoping all these festivals get moved to be a more human friendly venue.

  • Suggestion #1: tear down the FBI building. After that, I think we’re good to go.
