Opposition to D.C. public-private land deals imperil library, other projects

“During the past five years, District leaders have spent nearly $200 million to rebuild or renovate 14 public libraries. But the West End Neighborhood Library, a fraying, 46-year-old, concrete-and-brick edifice at 24th and L streets NW, has not been among them.

Plans dating back more than seven years to replace the library and a nearby fire station at no direct cost to taxpayers have languished despite the support of two mayors, a unanimous D.C. Council and numerous community groups.” (via The Washington Post)
