Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
I know that many Ricochetti have been anxious to know when this important restoration would be completed. The new asphalt surface on the 800-900 blocks of 16th Street NW was barely dry when our crack restoration teams arrived to repaint the distinctive giant yellow letters of the District’s very own BLM Plaza.
I can report that the message has been restored in full in only one day which I know will be a source of both relief and inspiration.
No work crews were pulled from doing any belated repairs on schools or public housing, parks, or other DC facilities, because none of that was going to happen soon anyway.
Mayor Bowser would most likely want me to point out that the extraordinarily rapid execution of this project is not an indication, a promise, or even a suggestion that resolution of permit applications, tax issues, site cleanups, or any other functions of or services by the DC government will be done with alacrity and timeliness in the future.
