Forest Hills still has many gaps in the sidewalk system, and ANC 3F continues to push the District Department of Transportation to fill them. It appears that our commissioners and residents want a continuous network of sidewalks that safely lead to buses, shopping and other destinations on Connecticut Avenue, and also to community amenities such as the Forest Hills Park.
ANC 3F at its October 20th meeting unanimously approved a resolution in support of filling gaps on 32nd and Fessenden Streets.
In the resolution, ANC 3F asks that DDOT:
With those sidewalks added, residents will be able to walk from Linnean Avenue to Connecticut Avenue and the park without competing with cars on the roadway.
Other gaps remain, including one on the 4600 block of 30th Street, and on Davenport between Linnean and just west of 30th, which is a walking route to Murch. Are these next on the agenda?
