What’s the Future of Bladensburg Road?
Bladensburg Road Re-imagined!
Trinidad residents got a glimpse at what Bladensburg Road may look in the future. H Street Main Street is turning the corner to create a coordinated development strategy for the eastern edge of our neighborhood: Bladensburg Road from the Starburst Intersection to Mt. Olivet Road. Derrick Woody, a consultant with HSMS, gave a Bladensburg Road Re-Imagined presentation at the May TNA community meeting. You can view the presentation here BLADENSBURG ROAD PRESENTATION
This is just a first step in the long-term planning process. Community input is essential throughout the process. Please direct any comments on the presentation or questions regarding the development strategy to Derrick at email@example.com.
In the meantime, expect to see more activity at the Starburst Plaza (where H St, Florida Ave, Benning Road and Bladensburg Road intersect). HSMS is planning for a farmers’ market, concerts and other activities this summer.

Bodega Market Seeks to Add Spirits to Beer/Wine Sales
The Bodega Market has applied to the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA) for a substantial change to its license, from a Class B to a Class A. That means it would expand to sell spirits as well as the beer and wine already offered in the store. The Bodega has reportedly purchased the liquor license from Brothers Liquor, which earlier this year closed their store located next to the Bodega.
Expect the owners to come before the ANC to ask for community support. The ANC can vote to support or protest the application. ABRA also enables residents to protest a liquor license application: How To File a Protest.
