Today was the official ribbon cutting of the Hine development, a process we have all watched with great interest. (all photos RSP)
The usual crowd of dignitaries was on hand, led, of course, by Mayor Bowser.
There was also an opportunity for Councilmembers, officials in the planning staff, and developers to speak. But really, it was an opportunity to get out the big scissors.
Also lots of other photographers.
