ground broken for the new library
where the front steps will be, the before picture
ground was broken last week on the new Anacostia Neighborhood Library on Good Hope Road, and the word from the top is that it should open in Spring of 2010. Here's to hoping that some real progress gets underway soon!
Reminder: this was the original "final" design:
clean lines, bold tower
and here is the more busy / less appealing design they surprised us with more recently:
distracting signage, minimized tower, less bold
if, like me, you'd like to see the beacon "tower of light" regain its prominence, the design get back its clean lines, and a flag to be raised saying that our community really cares about this new neighborhood asset, please send an email to the team by Clicking Here. (customize as you wish, and don't forget to fill in your name at the bottom)
We only have one chance to get this right.
