The word is now out that Carol Anderson-Austra, the Anacostia Waterfront Corporation
's project director for Canal Park
, is not among those AWC staffers moving over to the office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development
. As I mentioned in my "Whither Canal Park?
" entry of a few days ago, the park itself appears to be at an impasse thanks to the issue of moving the school buses, so I'm sure residents and interested observers will be looking forward to word from the DMPED folks as to how they're planning to move the park forward.
Speaking of the move of AWC to DMPED, DC Cable Channel 16 is replaying the ceremony
from a few weeks ago when Mayor Fenty signed the bill transferring AWC and the NCRC to city control. It's on this week on Tuesday and Thursday at 1:30 pm (also available via streaming video
if you don't have DC cable).
