Sign a Petition to Support a Local Option for Hyde

ANC Preview: Hyde Gym Edition

As GM mentioned earlier this week, families of Hyde-Addison Elementary school and other community members are lobbying the DC Public Schools to provide a local “swing space” while the gym is being build at the school over the next year or two. Now those behind the efforts have drafted a petition. GM hopes you will sign it.

GM has heard some rumors that give him reason to be hopeful that a local option will be selected, but we need to keep up the pressure to have any hope that that will come to be. So please sign the petition!

The petition can be found here and here’s the flyer the group prepared:

Recently GM happened on a photo (above) he took in the middle of September 2013 of his street as a giant crane was being used to install his new HVAC equipment. What he noticed was how much worse the trees appear on this block than they do now, almost exactly three years later:
