Former Sales Trailer to be put to use by CID

The Mount Vernon Triangle CID has worked out an arrangement with QDC/Wilkes to put the former Madrigal Sales Trailer back to use. The MVTCID plans to use the trailer for community meeting space and facilities for the Clean Team.

The new day to day activity at the trailer should ensure that the front steps will no longer be a homeless campground. The vagrant who had been squatting at the site had gotten so bold as to place a mattress on the landing this past weekend.

    Unfortunately, blight is the result when you leave a property vacant and barren. The owner should have done something constructive on this corner a long time ago! Instead, hookers and the homeless put the space to use. This should surprise no one. Glad to know that something is finally being done here.

    I believe this little corner site is slated to be a park in the Mount Vernon Place masterplan. But the developer is unlikely to turn that vision into reality until they develop the massive parking lot that shares the same block. Translation: Probably 4+ years off.
