This commercial property at the corner of 7th & Q St NW is falling down & has been a blight in the neighborhood for over 20 years. A Metro bus ran into the 7th St side before that time & the owner never repaired the damage. From my understanding the current owner declared bankruptcy a few years ago. This is located on a prominent corner in the middle of a revitalized neighborhood. It has been too many years for our neighborhood to have this eyesore. Why can't the city claim " Eminent Domain" & seize the property for the good of the community ( as they did for National's Park )??????
You installed "stop for pedestrian" signs in the street about a month ago on this crosswalk and farther down Florida Avenue. They have been hit so many ones that they are now gone. Please replace them or, better yet, come up with a more permanent solution that will actually make it safe to use this crosswalk. Signals or stop signs would be lovely. So would raised intersections. This is needed because cars routinely speed between Rhode Island and North Capitol Street. Thanks!
Handicap permit holder parks outside of their designated space to hold a space for their own vehicle that has no permit to handicap parking, taking advantage that vehicles can't use their parking space. This happens on a daily basis. This is a violation of the privilege as well as being unfair and not very neighborly. Please follow up on our complaint.
