This will mess you up. No, seriously -- not in a good way.
This week in Foggy Bottom: monks, drunks, extortion, and more!
All the news inside...
Earlier this week I posted that the West End Library and Fire Station redevelopment plan was in peril after seeing this message posted on the Foggy Bottom listserv informing us of a challenge to the project that required help from the community to overcome. The posted message implies that because the city would provide no funding, it was now extra important for citizens to come out to support an alternate means of funding.
Last night, Foggy Bottom Association President and ANC commissioner Asher Corson contacted me to say that’s not exactly right, and the project is in fact not in peril. Instead, he says that this is all just part of the plan. In his own words:
ANC 2A holds its regular meeting tonight from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at the West End Library. Kwame Brown will be there, and the full agenda can be found here.
Are any of our readers planning to attend?
