Adams Morgan ANC Seeks Online Feedback in Marie Reed Modernization

Modernization options A and B(Corrected at 1:47 p.m. on June 29) Adams Morgan’s ANC 1C is asking for online feedback on two proposals to modernize the Marie Reed Elementary School at 2201 18th Street NW.

The 2016 D.C. budget will allow the school to undergo a complete modernization over the next two years.

In the first proposal, the existing building would be reused and expanded for additional recreational space and health services.

In the second, only the eastern half of the existing building would be reused and expanded, and a new school and recreation center would be constructed on the southern end of the campus.

Residents can choose between the two concepts by voting online.

ANC 1C commissioners will tally the community votes and take final community comments at the commission’s next meeting on Wednesday, July 8 at 6 p.m. at Mary’s Center, 2355 Ontario Road NW.

  1. Option A seems better in that it keeps the buildings more clustered together, and it reuses more of the main building. It also keeps the sports fields towards the South where there’s a nice view to and from the neighborhood.

  2. The meeting is actually at 6 pm

  3. You’re right, sorry about that. I’ll make a correction now.
