Cary Silverman, MVSNA president and candidate for the Ward 2 council seat, recently organized a meeting with city government officials including Council Member Tommy Wells (D-Ward 6); Sarah Latterner, Director of the Mayor’s Office of Community Relations and Services; Jason Turner, Chief of Planning and Capital Projects for the Department of Parks and Recreation; and concerned residents of the Sonata condominium and the Mount Vernon area to discuss maintenance and renovation of a dilapidated and forgotten park at 2nd Street and Massachusetts Avenue NW.
Read more about the meeting on Cary’s blog. Seems to be some well thought out action items for city officials and residents to reclaim and beautify this park. These items include not only funding for improvements but also giving the park a name to foster ownership. This seemed to come together very quickly after the Spring parks cleanup MVSNA and the CID organized in later April.
