Letter to the Editor: ANC 2E to distribute information on Hyde-Addison project

Hyde-Addison Elementary School is located at 3219 O St. NW. (Brian Kapur/The Current/March 2016)

On July 20, a neighborhood working group convened by Rick Murphy of Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2E (Georgetown, Burleith) met with representatives of the D.C. Public Schools, the D.C. Department of General Services and MCN Build, the general contractor for the Hyde-Addison Elementary School construction project. Georgetown residents Hazel Denton, Leslie Maysak and Constance Chatfield-Taylor all volunteered their time to participate in the meeting, which I attended as well. The purpose was to open communications with the individuals responsible for the project in an effort to minimize construction-related disruptions in the neighborhood.

The attendees worked through a detailed agenda and, among other things, agreed to establish communication channels that will be used to keep members of the public informed as the project progresses. In that connection, I agreed to create an email group and to forward information the working group receives from the D.C. Public Schools, the Department of General Services and MCN Build to neighbors who ask to be included. If you would like to receive emails about the project, please contact me at 2E02@anc.dc.gov or 202-836-2239.

Joe Gibbons, Chair, ANC 2E
