This spring there has been a lot of talk about the beloved Washington School Green Space.
Quick summary for those of you not following the news: The Washington School Property is being redeveloped into private housing units. For those living in the neighborhood this means increased density and cars in the area as well as a loss of public green space. For many years the green space has been a highly frequented destination for families and friends to play and enjoy the outdoors in a safe close place. The loss of the green space would be mourned by many in the area the neighbors have decided to take a stand.
Washington School Neighbors are circulating a petition to ask City Council to partner with Washington School Neighbors to make part of the school property into a green space that will continue to be a public area for all the neighborhood to enjoy.
