Neighborhood Conservation Advisory Committee Project for CHCA

To:      Residents of the Columbia Heights neighborhood

Monday night members of Columbia Heights Civic Association approved a first-priority project to be submitted to the Neighborhood Conservation Advisory Committee (NCAC) this Thursday (December 10).

The group discussed three possible projects but settled on one that would provide new street lights running down S. Edgewood Street, from Columbia Pike to 13th Road, going around the corner on 13th Road, and looping around to S. Cleveland Street all the way back to Columbia Pike.  The project would include the side streets of 13th Street and 12th Street, between Cleveland and Edgewood.  This “loop” would include undergrounding infrastructure.

The other projects considered included upgrading the pocket park at S. Cleveland Street and 11th Street, and the possibility of sidewalks on some blocks within our civic association area (although no specific block was identified).     If you have any comments or suggestions about any of these options, please let us know as soon as possible.
