    get in touch with your councilmember. i contacted jack evans’ office (as well as the library office) with my concerns, and while i can’t say my prodding had anything to do with it (most likely it didn’t), i still think it’s something that a good public shaming should help rectify.

    of course, if this is still federal property, all bets are off.

    Either way, I’m happy to see them start. I wasn’t expecting any work on that building for a few years.

    Are those trees going to survive the renovation? I’m thinking not, but I hope they replace it with something nice.

    Taking over the sidewalks while chunks of concrete are being chiseled off the building facade is one thing, but they have also confiscated one lane of Eye Street and part of 4th Street for what appears to be use as their own private parking lot. Combined with cars parked on the opposite side of the street, Eye is basically cut down to one lane right now.

    @Steven – I don’t think the 4th Street trees will survive as they will likely be casualties to the Fourth Street widening. I’m unsure about Eye Street but I hope the mature trees can remain.

    @Anon 13:45 – you’re right, Sigal claimed the entire sidewalk and a lane of Fourth Street shortly after my posting. I didn’t want to do two postings on this same subject in one week when there is so much more going on to talk about. But we’ll revisit this topic next week.
