We have reached a very critical point in the Pope Branch Park Restoration Project(s). On October 2, 2007, the Design Team of Black and Veatch (B&V) submitted the design Alternative technical memorandum to DCWASA, DDOE, & DDPR the projects three MOU Agencies. Since that time they have been in consultation and have reached logical conclusions on ways to proceed. We look forward to discussing & learning more about the design directions. It is necessary that best practice is employed in the design and execution of the project forward.

We have good news regarding Certificate of appreciation for the Anacostia Senior High School Students that assisted in planting the two Rain Gardens in our park. We are awaiting the schools decision regarding when to present them to the students. Also, we need to move forward with plans for a formal dedication of the Rain Gardens this spring.

DDOT is invited to present their plans to repair the culvert between M Street and M Place SE located just west of Branch Avenue.

Refreshments will be available at the meeting.
