Big Week for Edgewood

Tonight is the meeting for the surplusing of the Edgewood Shaed Elementary School Building.  It is important that everyone attend to give their input of what happens to the building.  I have been advocating for turning it into a Recreation Center/Nonprofit building which would host classes and activities for the community.  Others in the neighborhood would like it to become a charter school and with all the new children in the neighborhood that idea has merits as well especially if a quality school would like to open. 
The meeting is at the Edgewood Recreation Center hosted by DGS.

For those of you that do not follow me on Twitter-  I wanted to add a blog post about the starting of construction of the pedestrian bridge for the Metropolitan Branch Trail to the Rhode Island Avenue metro station.  Ever since I moved to Edgewood over 5 years ago now I have been following the developments around this much needed bridge and how it will change the daily lives of so many of my neighbors for the better!  I have been pushing DDOT, the DC Council members and mayor for a start date and this week it is happening!  The bridge should be completed by December 2014/February 2015.  The project has its own website so we can follow the progress -

Two of the biggest issues in Edgewood are moving forward this week which is really exciting!
