Unless I am missing something, I cannot find any reference to the Carter G. Woodson Site in the NPS's Centennial Initiative. As you may recall, at a meeting hosted by Shaw Main Streets last February, the NPS apprised us that the site's renovation would likely be tied to the NPS's Centennial Initiative (the NPS's centennial celebration is in 2016 and has a lot of investment in NPS properties prior to it). The Carter G. Woodson Site is not a listed specifically as a NPS Centennial Strategy nor is it listed as part of the strategy for the National Capital Parks - East.
I have seen virtually no activity at the site in the past year. The place continues to deteriorate--most recently, an ornate, original iron railing was pushed down by vagrants who frequently drink on the stoops of the properties. The NPS maintenance staff show up periodically to remove trash, but their maintenance efforts are minimal to say the least (I'd say they average 10 minutes at the site when they come, which seems to be pretty infrequent). I wonder if anything really is going on behind the scenes to make this NPS site anything other than neighborhood-harming blight.
