[from Joe Martin, an email to the Ward 4 Neighborhood Services Coordinator]
Back on May 24th, I put in a service request for the repair of two areas of the sidewalk of the 200 block of Upshur Street NW - where the sidewalks are in dangerously bad shape. It is especially disturbing that those sidewalks have been in that shape for years.
I am planning to put a lot of effort into attracting new businesses to the closed storefronts in that area. Anything you do to help is appreciated, but I feel very strongly about wanting to see those horrible sidewalks repaired soon.
