Realizing Fort Totten's potential

By washingtonpost.com editors

I was elated to read that there is movement on the Cafritz Foundation project on the northeast side of Fort Totten [editorial, Nov. 9]. I live a block from the development site, and I welcome it with open arms. The neighborhood is already safe, clean, inexpensive and easily accessible by three Metro lines. But because of a lack of services, I find myself spending my money elsewhere on things such as my gym membership and groceries. I would much rather keep this money in the neighborhood.

This project, plus the new University of the District of Columbia community college campus at the former Backus Middle School, will help Fort Totten grow to realize its full potential.

I agree with you. I'm planning on moving to the area, and am happy to know that there will be services close by.
