Thanks to Mary for sending the update on the bench divider over the weekend. Unclear if it was a rogue removal or an official removal. Commenters to the original post say: “There is an ANC meeting tomorrow night at the Mount pleasant library at 730 pm to decide what to do about these.”

UPDATE from DPR:

“The Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) would like to thank the community for bringing this to our attention. The installation of the middle dividers was not authorized by the District government. Therefore, at DPR’s request, the Department of General Services (DGS) removed the dividers earlier this week.”
