one of my biggest praises for the Fenty administration is that thing are actually getting done. Sure, some of the big plans don't pan out as expected and he sometimes jetsets around without telling the press, but there is a new kind of efficiency and modern work ethic in the city that's pretty great.
outpost of sketchy used car "sales" no longer
case in point: the slew of grimy / sketchy "used car lots" that weren't even legit businesses that lined many of the city's up-and-coming retail corridors. the administration heard the complaints that they weren't actually selling cars to the public, and in swoops the Fenty crackdown to get rid of them. Love it.
they even took the signs
this month the car lot crackdown finally made its way to the corner of MLK Ave and U Street:
and now, another developable lot...
I still need to check out some of the lots on Good Hope - anyone notice if the same is true there? Remember, if you see something sketchy or want something fixed, just call 311 (Mayor's citywide call center) or plug a request into the Service Request Center.
