dog park illegal

Ed. Note: Personally I’m pro dog park, as is probably not a surprise, and I understand frustration but SMDH at this campaign. We most recently spoke about the plans for a dog park in Takoma back in February.

From a press release:

“Rock Creek Property Group broke ground today on the restoration of the historic Takoma Theatre. Located at 6833 4th Street, NW, the theater is in the Takoma neighborhood of DC, just two blocks from the Red Line’s Takoma Metro station, a five-minute drive to Silver Spring, a seven-minute drive to the Beltway, and a 20-minute drive to downtown Washington.

Architect John Jacob Zink designed the theater in the 1920s. Zink would go on to design more than 200 theaters around the country, including the Atlas Performing Arts Center on H Street, NE, the Uptown Theater in Cleveland Park, and the Senator Theatre in Baltimore. The Takoma Theatre was one of the first theaters in the area to feature “talkies,” when a sound system was installed in 1929. Throughout its time as an active theater, the Takoma Theatre featured a wide array of performances, including an HBO comedy special by Chris Rock in 1996. (more…)
