Letters to the Editor

In the Feb. 7 issue of The Current, Phil Kroskin, the Sunrise vice president, said he is working to get the 100-plus resident project “below 60 percent” lot occupancy. He has the wrong goal. The Sunrise/Wisconsin Avenue Baptist Church (WABC) development...
The Current’s April 11 article on forthcoming changes to District street lights, as described by Judah Gluckman of the Office of Public and Private Partnerships (OP3), was welcome, but incomplete. Our nonprofit, Restore Mass Ave., is restoring the tree landscape...

Two seemingly unrelated items in the Jan. 17 issue caught my eye. A story on page one revealed that D.C. water bills are likely to rise to pay for the $2.6 billion water storage tunnels. According to the article, the...
Before developers unsheath their sledgehammers to raze 4000 Wisconsin Ave. NW — a large, reasonably attractive, rather youthful structure — how about shaking a leg and rebuilding the American University Park site a mile or so away that once...
