701 Washington Boulevard: Minor Changes Are Not Enough

After hearing that some minor changes were made to the property at 701 Washington Boulevard (owned by Dr. Anwar Mumtaz), we decided to see for ourselves.  While we agree it’s a slight improvement — the homeless camp is gone — we weren’t that impressed with this cleanup effort.  After speaking with a resident of the neighborhood, we learned that yes, the shrubbery in the back was removed and so was the orange fencing along the edge of the Sav-A-Lot.  However, the debris from the shrubbery was dumped at the side entrance to the parking lot, and the orange fencing was left on the sidewalk at MLK Jr. Boulevard.  We hope Dr. Mumtaz plans on removing this trash and debris immediately.

This pile of debris, along with the orange fencing on the sidewalk at MLK needs to be removed.
