The District’s vehicle maintenance, re-fueling and parking facilities along West Virginia Ave between Mt. Olivet Road and New York Avenue is set to be transformed “into a model of sustainable public works operations and a catalyst for community development.” Over the next 6 months there will be various opportunities for the public to contribute to the process, including open office hours, focus group visioning sessions and another open house in the fall.
