Several BNCA members in the Perry Place Neighborhood have joined together to stop the development of a garage in our small, family oriented community.
Serious concerns on pollution, congestion, poor land use which will be made worse by the huge influx of cars to the proposed garage. [Think 7 miles of cars back to back!]
A petition has been created to send to Kurt Newman, MD, President Children’s National Medical Center, Ramu Potarazu, Secretary-Treasurer, and 8 others.
If you are interested in signing the petition, please click here: http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/put-pedestrian-safety?source=c.em.mt&r_by=121090

On April 18, 2015, many volunteers from the Brookland neighborhood came to the Fort Bunker Hill Park and participated in a clean-up effort. The focus for the day was removal of trash, which we succeeded with many filled bags by the end of the gathering. Also present were representatives from the NPS who will be working with us on future clean-up projects.
Fort Bunker Hill Park, A National Park, is the highest point in our Brookland neighborhood and located within the borders of 13th, 14th, Otis and Perry Streets. Built in 1861, FBH is part of the DC Civil Wars’ ‘Circle of Forts’ Defense System in NE, Washington DC. As a part of our Nations History, it is important to show stewardship for our park in the Heart of Brookland. For more History of the Ft. Bunker Hill Park please see ◦2004 Civilian Conservation Corps Report on History of Fort Bunker Hill Park
Overall, it was a great day and look forward to routinely working with the NPS to continue on improving the park to make it a better place for us all to visit. Thanks to everyone that participated and we look forward to the Fall clean-up.
A very good June meeting with our neighbors at Brooks Mansion on Tuesday June 16th, 2015. We look forward to seeing everyone in July!
