Parks & Environment
Chairperson: Nancy Desmond
The Dupont Circle neighborhood is most known for its landmark public park, Dupont Circle. However it is the multitude of smaller parks, green spaces and gardens, and the people who care for them, that give our neighborhood its unique character. The Parks and Environment Committee explores and makes recommendations on beautification, clean-up and maintenance projects, including the following related issues: street trees and tree guards, graffiti abatement, rats and trash, and visual clutter such as sidewalk vending boxes. Current efforts include the Tree Guard Program, whereby DCCA members may be eligible for $100 rebates under this program.
