Washington, DC

“Dear PoPville,

These flyers were on cars up and down the street today. One was stuffed in my mailbox (which any good dc political folk would know is illegal).

People are seriously off their rocker about this condo. Call out the tax abatement, I agree. But they don’t even talk about that on their ridiculous flyer.

P.S. The “last open green space” isn’t open to the public.”

The “Keep Dupont Green” [reminiscent of the “Save McMillan Park” campaign] website says:

“Faced with the proposed over-sized development behind the Masonic Temple at 16th & S St. NW, in Dupont Circle, grassroots neighbors rose up to mount a campaign of protest. In sympathy with the alarm expressed by residents at similar developments around the city reflecting an official thrust in favor of development, gentrification and displacement, in violation of the spirit of the grand design of L’Enfant and the DC Comprehensive Plan for a livable/walkable city, we welcome the formation of this coalition to reject the development planned by the Masonic Temple and demonstrate to preserve open, green space to save our neighborhoods throughout our city.”
