“Dear PoPville,

I wanted to share a petition that many neighbors of Perry Place NE in Brookland have put together in opposition to the parking garage for Children’s Hospital that is set to be built right behind our block, next to the Brookland Metro.

Please see below for more information as well as a direct link to the petition:

Several Perry Place Neighbors have joined together to stop the development of a garage in our small, family oriented community.

We have schools nearby and many children who play in parks near the proposed garage. Like many other urban areas, our children suffer from respiratory ailments, like asthma which will be made worse by the huge influx of cars to the proposed garage.

That’s why we created a petition to Kurt Newman, MD, President Children’s National Medical Center, Ramu Potarazu, Secretary-Treasurer, and 8 others.

If you are interested in signing the petition, please click here.”

Apparently burlesque shows with jazz was a no go here. How about a three story cigar bar? The Washington Business Journal reports:

“Applications have been filed with both the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration and the Department of Health to bring a Burn by Rocky Patel to 477 H St. NW, a 10,000-square-foot historic former bank branch owned by Douglas Development Corp. Per the liquor license application, Burn, a new three-story tavern with a seating capacity of 250 and a total occupancy load of 350, will operate as a cigar lounge serving food and alcohol. There will also be a DJ and solo performances.”

Stay tuned…
