Downtown Park and Open Space Survey PDF Print E-mail
Written by Daniel Conner   
Tuesday, 27 October 2009

The DC Office of Planning along with federal partners and stakeholders are examining access, availability, and programming for park and open spaces in DC's Downtown and the emerging high-density neighborhoods north of Massachusetts Avenue.  The objective of this examination is to understand what type of improvements will better serve Downtown's workers and growing residential population. 

The examination will look at both how we can better use existing parks such as Mt. Vernon Square and the many triangle parks, such as Gompers Park, but also plan for new parks and open spaces in areas where they are needed. By completing this survey you will help the Office of Planning better understand how to plan for these parks to better serve area residents and workers.

If you would like more information on this effort, please contact Thor Nelson at (202) 741-5241 or by email at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

Ward 6 Principal Honored as 2009 Distinguished Principal PDF Print E-mail
Written by Anne Phelps   
Monday, 26 October 2009

The National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) recently honored J.O. Wilson Elementary School principal Cheryl Warley as a National Distinguished Principal last week. As the DC honoree Principal Warley joined sixty-two other principals from across the country at the NAESP award ceremony last week.

The National Distinguished Principal program was established 15 years ago to honor exemplary elementary and middle-school principals who “set the pace, character, and quality” of the education children receive.

Since taking over at J.O. Wilson in 2002, Principal Warley has worked to increase parent participation, including creating a parent resource center with computers and one-on-one mentoring. Under her leadership, the school has made its Annual Yearly Progress goals for four consecutive years and its French program continues to be recognized nationally.

She’s built strong ties with the neighborhood, area civic associations, and other groups to make J.O. Wilson a model for community partnerships. With these strong relationships supporting her efforts, she’s overseen the complete renovation of the school library and the school grounds – both are now state-of-the-art facilities.

This is a prestigious award and we’re delighted to congratulate Principal Warley on this honor.
