    • DC’s Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development issued an RFP for 2225 5th Street NE and 513 Rhode Island Avenue NE:
      • “Redevelopment of the site must incorporate a new fire station for Engine 12 and may include a mix of uses including retail and housing. Given robust population growth and construction activity in the area, the site is a prime candidate for mixed use development including commercial and residential uses built in conjunction with the fire station”
    • Eckington residents are working on a draft letter asking for steps to improve Eckington’s tree canopy, including the need for more street tree boxes on neighborhood sidewalks. We’ll work with Eckington Parks and Arts to move it along.
