FQoTD – “Dupont Circle-like Area East of the Park”?

Dupont Circle in the trees, originally uploaded by connave.

I received the following awesome email:

“The Office of Planning, in coordination with the National Capital Planning Commission and the District Department of Transportation, are working on a re-visioning of the North Capitol Street Cloverleaf interchange at North Capitol Street, NW and Irving Street, NW.

We are in the process of doing a study to test other design options, such as a traffic circle, for that location and looking at how these changes affect neighborhood character.

We could really use help getting the word out to younger residents of Petworth, Bloomingdale, Brookland, Eckington, Park View, Pleasant Hills, and Pleasant Plains. We are hosting a community workshop on Saturday, March 14, from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. (at the Pryzbyla Great Room , Catholic University Student Center, 620 Michigan Ave, NE) to ask for community input on what they’d like to see happen at this interchange.

(,a,1354,q,645949.asp). It is an opportunity for residents to help create a vibrant, Dupont Circle-like area east of the park.”

Wow, this sounds like a phenomenal development. So my question is two fold. Do you think a “Dupont Circle-like area east of the park” is realistic? Secondly, as I’m a huge fan of all the circles in DC, I’m wondering if there are other fans of DC’s circles? I know some folks don’t like them because of driving issues. What do you think – do you dig them?
