School may be out for the summer, but planning continues for the Murch modernization to ensure it remains on track to begin construction in the summer of 2016. The Department of General Services (DGS) and DC Public Schools hosted a community meeting on July 1 to present proposed revisions to the design concept. The revisions were aimed at addressing the concerns expressed about the original design by the Murch community at a meeting in June.
A copy of the presentation from the July 1 community meeting is available on the DGS website. For more details about the meeting and reactions to the revised design, check out The Northwest Current article summarizing the meeting.
Once school resumes in the fall, DGS plans to have regular community meetings to discuss progress and planning for the project.
