WP: Can DC Grow W/its 20 Somethings?
This Post opinion piece discusses the influx of new residents, and wonders whether the District can mature to meet their needs as they have and raise children. You may have noticed a bit of a baby boom in the H Street Corridor. It started on Capitol Hill, but is also happening Trinidad. I'm noticing that many people who moved to the neighborhood within the past several years (sometimes past few) are having children, and making it clear that they don't plan to head for the suburbs. On Capitol Hill, involved parents have worked together to improve the DCPS schools. We've also seen the formation of new charters like Two Rivers.
