Yes To A Pool At Hearst Park

The Washington, DC City Council has budgeted more than $5 million to design and build a new outdoor public pool in Hearst Park - Ward 3's first. Yet some of the park's neighbors are fighting the project. They fear parking issues, possible loss of some of the park's three tennis courts or a possible loss of trees, among other things. It's not clear any of these things would have to happen, and that good design wouldn't provide a better way. Be a part of the first phase of that good design and lend your voice in support of a pool at Hearst Park. Sign this petition to the coordinators and project managers at DC's Department of General Services and Department of Parks and Recreation.

This petition will be delivered to:
  • Community Outreach Coordinator, Department of General Services
    Jackie Stanley - DC DGS
  • Ward 3 Councilmember (c/o Dee Smith, Deputy Chief of Staff)
    Mary Cheh - DC Council
