Duke Ellington Work Annoys Neighbors
By November 8, 2016 0 524•
Neighbors of the Duke Ellington School for the Arts have been enduring truck traffic and parking restrictions for months during the school’s ongoing renovation and expansion. Here is just one example from Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner Ed Solomon: “Parking restrictions signs have appeared on R Street across from the Duke Ellington School between 35th and 36th. I have been receiving numerous complaints from neighbors. No notice was given to me, the construction management team or the community.” Solomon asked for parking relief and a meeting to work out parking arrangements, adding: “I would urge your team to take down existing signs to be replaced by signs having the least impact on the community.” That sounds all too familiar.
