Last Friday, Councilmember Todd joined District and neighborhood leadership to cut the ribbon on the Kennedy Street Revitalization Project. This $10 million investment brought new sidewalks, lighting, tree boxes, crosswalks, landscaping, public art, litter receptacles, bike racks, and curb accessibility to Kennedy Street. Councilmember Todd was proud to work with Mayor Bowser on completing this critical project, which is already spurring new investment and growth along this critical commercial corridor.
This ribbon cutting follows a number of actions that Councilmember Todd has taken to continue the revitalization of Kennedy Street. Soon after taking office, he introduced legislation that created the Kennedy Street, NW Economic Development and Small Business Revitalization Advisory Committee. Councilmember Todd was also integral in obtaining funding for the new Uptown Main Street, which works to support business investment along Kennedy and Upper 14th Streets, NW. Kennedy Street is open for business and looks better than ever!
