what about working to keep GREEN SPACE GREEN?

 DCMTB hosts DCCX at the AFRH...
that is a whole lot of letters
in short...
there is this green space in the city on the grounds of the Armed Forces Retirement Home

this green space has a golf course, a stocked pond, and some open space that is used for cross country running events and our DCCX cyclocross clinics and the DCCX cyclocross race itself
lets not ignore the dynamic nature of the use of this space

but there is a "rumbling" that this GREEN SPACE is going to be developed
there is some "rumbling" that METRO is eyeballing some of this space to build its METRO BUS GARAGE

well...
GREEN SPACE IS A VALUABLE ASSET!
KEEP GREEN SPACE GREEN!
this area at the AFRH home is a beautiful plot of land
land that would make a great park if made public
or could stay private and be used on a permission basis as it is used now
but METRO BUS GARAGE?
how about the RFK Parking lot?

give me a break
who is making these decisions?
who is making these considerations?
we need people to understand the value of this beautiful land
and I have not even attempted to discuss the history of this land
