at last week's HABA meeting, Mayor Fenty came to answer questions about development, transportation infrastructure, abandoned properties, and the Historic Homeowner Grant Program.
clearly these grants are making a real difference in Anacostia - just check out some of what was happening around the neighborhood last week:
scraped and primed on Rosie's Row
some good-looking new windows on 15th Street
more brick repointing on 13th Street
Anacostia's oldest got sanded and scraped
there have been rumors that the program would be cut out of the 2009 budget, but we did our best to convince the Mayor of its totally critical importance.
