Credit when Credit is Due “NPS comes through…after 5 years”

“Dear PoPville,

Just wanted to share some photos of the National Park Service clearing snow from the pocket park at 11th and Maryland, NE. In the 5 years I’ve been in my apartment, they have never cleared. Now? Bobcat, 3 crew members shoveling and salt!”

    Saw the same crew clearing out piles of snow that were intruding on intersections on my way to the metro this morning (along E Steet NE between 2nd & 6th).

    So, it probably wasn’t NPS so much as those awesome contractors that came down from Boston . . .

    Saw a crew of three guys in NPS green clearing sidewalks around Scott Circle this morning too. I took a picture to send to my friends because I was sure nobody would believe me when I said NPS was clearing snow!

    who can i contact at NPS to request that some clearing take place at the NPS site in my hood?

    I presume the NPS was also responsible for digging out Sherman Circle on Wednesday. It’s clearly a machine-completed job. I was also pleasantly surprised when I saw that.
