Update:

For the benefit of all slipholders, a copy of the Wharf developer's transition plans with graphic depictions of the Phase II, PUD plan is now in the laundry room. Please feel free to look at but leave the books there for other slipholders to also be able to review. This is similar to what can be found on the Wharf website, but may be easier for some to access.

Nov. 7 Community Tree Planting a Success!

Last week was rather busy, and we forgot to post wonderful coverage of our tree planting from the SWDC blog:

http://swdcblog.com/2009/11/new-trees-stand-in-maine-avenue-median.html

We had over 80 volunteers help plant 22 honey locust trees in the Median of Maine Ave. between 6th and 7th streets SW. We also planted one additional tree in the GP parking lot near the mailboxes. We hope these trees will have a calming effect on traffic and a positive impact the environment and aesthetic beauty in SW DC. The event served as a wonderful opportunity to bring folks from all across the city together to focus on improving our community. This is just the beginning, however. Now we will need volunteers to help water the trees in the Spring. Please be send an email to GPSA if you are interested in helping out.

Here are some photos from the planting here:
