D.C. officials promised the residents of Temple Courts new, affordable housing when it knocked down their building in 2008. Nearly a decade later, the former residents are still waiting for that housing to materialize — but the Bowser administration says it is bringing new energy and focus to the long-delayed process. The city, with input from the community, plans to select the proposal and developer by June. The process began under Mayor Anthony Williams as part of the New Communities Initiative, an ambitious but, some say, poorly-managed project intended to revitalize distressed, low-income housing. Kojo explores what the lengthy timeline has meant for the Former Temple Courts residents and how the city plans to move forward.
