Kramer Middle School
1700 Q Street, SE
Dear Mr. Coleman:
During its meeting of 18 March, the Commission reviewed and approved the proposed concept for renovation and site alterations to Kramer Middle School, located at 1700 Q Street, SE The Commission is supportive of the re-use of the existing structure and encourages the timely removal of the existing maintenance facility to provide additional play areas for the students. However, every effort should be made to provide additional parking at the rear of the building, rather than at the prominent comer of Q and 18th Streets. If a reduced number of spaces must occur in this location, additional landscaping should be provided to screen the parking as much as possible.
The Commission looks forward to further review of this project in the near future.
