Community Market for the Avenue

There seems to be a new initiative from Janice Booker for RIA. I like this effort for one main reason: it creates a sense of neighborhood, if done correctly, just like the markets on Capitol Hill, in DuPont, and other areas of the city. I am cautiously optimistic. If this takes off for Ms. Booker, I hope that she will take the initiative to redevelop the other parcels on RIA (especially where her law office is located) which has rapidly become an eyesore for the Avenue.

So to my fellow RIA Insiders, let’s help make a sense of community and support this effort:
