No objection to issuance of permit for the rehabilitation of Montrose Park tennis courts, which includes removal of second unoriginal tennis court near the ropewalk and reorientation of the first court to the original east-west position, replacement of chain-link fence, installation of additional stone retaining walls and plantings at the R Street tennis courts, and installation of three underground bioretention facilities, per drawings received 12 October 2018, which indicate the historic gas lamps would be retained, new chain-link fence would be painted a dark color, and only six trees would be removed. Note: Any subsequent modifications to the approved design, including those made during DCRA technical review, must be resubmitted to the Commission for approval prior to the issuance of a permit.
