Follow-up to the Mayor's Rosedale Walk-thru
The Rosedale neighborhood has been selected as a "Focus Improvement Area" by the Mayor's Office, allowing DC services to be expedited for the community.
In the spring 2008, Mayor Fenty, and his entourage of City officials, walked a portion of the Rosedale neighborhood identifying and generating a list of deficiencies the various DC government agencies could readily "improve", including: removing trash/debris piles, cutting overgrown vegetation, repaving alleys, securing vacant properties, issuing warning violations and removing graffiti.
Mayor Fenty was scheduled to return to the same area yesterday, October 10 @ noon, to personally witness the improvements. Here are a few before and after photographs provided by Caroline Jhingory, Ward 6 Outreach and Services Specialist for the Mayor's Office of Community Relations and Services, who coordinated and managed the multi-agency efforts.
A huge thank you to Caroline Jhingory (firstname.lastname@example.org) and her service team members. Their efforts and hard-work are not only testimony to the Mayor's commitment to providing excellent service to DC citizens, but also the folks on the ground making it happen.
