Medians Possible for Georgia Ave?


“Dear PoPville,

I moved to North Petworth last year and happen to live right on Georgia Avenue. Much talk has been discussed about making this area and the more northern parts of Ward 4 more attractive to development – especially by our Ward 4 council member candidates. My suggestion is this: Can we push the city to investigate the feasibility of putting a landscaped median along the northern stretch of Georgia Avenue, starting at the Georgia Avenue and New Hampshire intersection and extending to the border of Silver Spring? Much like the thoroughfares of Sherman Avenue, 16th Street, etc, the landscaped median would be a great way to beautify the space, slow down traffic, make the area more safe, and eventually attract local businesses.

I know there are plans for the Streetcar but those plans look like that will never come to fruition. This can be less expensive and time-consuming and have a more immediate impact on the area and really help it grow. Anybody think this is an idea worth pursuing? If so, let’s get together and figure it out!”
