DC Department of Parks and Recreation and Our Needs as a Community

From Jim


Below please find a list of dates that the DC Department of Parks and Recreation is hosting a series of open houses to receive comments on their Master Plan. It seems to me that the meeting at the Kennedy Playground provides a good opportunity for those of us who live below Florida Avenue, NW to talk about the recreation and leisure time needs of residents from our are (of all ages). In fact, we should be thinking about a location for a state of the art recreation facility. If anyone is interested in working on this issue with me, please send a return email at your very earliest convenience.
