Over the past few months I’ve been on temporary leave to work on an Airport Project out of town. During this time, I’ve gained a wealth of experience in the Planning and design of an airport and have decided to extend my time there. In doing so I have to step down as ANC Commissioner. This was no easy decision given the amount of work we have put in to go from $0 in Capital Funding to Nearly $40,000,000 to aid in the rebuilding of our school, recreation center and park. Thanks to all of the Seniors, hard-working neighbors , Council-members Kenyan McDuffie, Robert white, Anita Bonds & Mary Cheh and amazing supporters for the work we’ve done. I encourage everyone to become active with the Fort Lincoln Civic Association and continue the fight to make Fort Lincoln, the walkable, livable and amazing community it was always sought out to be.
I will continue to pay to keep this site active to serve as a repository of information during my tenure as ANC commissioner. Once I return to D.C. I will pick up regular posting with plans to expand beyond the immediate Fort Lincoln Area.
Thank you and see you soon!
Concerned about the absence of a neighborhood profile for Fort Lincoln, I reached out to the real estate site DC UrbanTurf periodically over the past few years to see when an update would take place. About a month ago they reached back out to add a profile for Fort Lincoln. They interviewed both new and long time residents in the community and for the most part covered it pretty well.

Tuesday’s meeting marked the official kick off for the planning and construction of the Theodore Hagans Cultural Center and Fort Lincoln Park. The presentation was led by the Department of Parks & Recreation (DPR) and the Department of General Services (DGS). The link to the power point presentation is below. I have extracted a few slides relating to the timeline and that addresses some of the issues from residents. Please note that DGS has created a website for communicating with residents. All questions should be directed to DGS regarding the planning and construction. As always I will provide support and help get responses to any questions presented.
