Dear PoP – What’s the Status of the Gage-Eckington Park?

“Dear PoP,

Have you heard an update on the Gage-Eckington park? It does not look like any progress has been made since the weather broke. I thought the contract mess got sorted out. Any news?”

Last we heard back in March Jim Graham annouced that money had been found for the project. The Ledroit Park Civic Association updated back in April that the project was slated to be completed by Nov. I too noticed that not much progress has been made after demolition and the fences went up. Anyone have the scoop? I’ll also email CM Graham’s office to see if they can update.
