Jim Graham Announces Financing of Park View CVS and Other Ward 1 News
From and email sent by Jim Graham tonight:
This week the D.C. Council approved emergency bills I introduced to help two important projects on Georgia Avenue.
One bill authorizes District financing assistance for the development of a CVS Pharmacy at Georgia and New Hampshire Avenues. This CVS is a long time coming for the Park View and Petworth neighborhoods. It will be a convenient addition to the growing communities.
The other authorizes closing the alley between Georgia and Sherman Avenues on Lamont Street. It will be replaced with a wider, more functional alley.
This will help with the construction of a new multi-family residential building at Georgia Avenue and Lamont Street. The building will house 69 units, at least half of which will be affordable.
Both of these developments are walking distance from the Georgia Ave-Petworth Metro station on the Green Line.
