Two suggestions

My first suggestion is for the Dupont Circle Fountain. It is known that the original Dupont Circle Fountain was built in 1884. This historical fountain is closed during these hot days. Please help turn on the fountain.

After all, a special microclimate is formed around the fountain: humid air, and a slightly lower temperature compared to the environment. In such an environment, people feel better — they breathe easily, there is a pleasant coolness from the water, and microscopic droplets refresh the skin. The pleasant murmur of water seems to cut off the extra noise of the city, the sun shining on the spray gives joy, and the contemplation of flowing water brings peace and tranquility. People’s lives become better and happier, calmer and more comfortable.

My second suggestion is to extend the Sunday operating hours of the Dupont Circle Farmer’s Market by two or three hours. Currently, the farmer’s market operates every Sunday from 8:30 a.m to 01:30 p.m. Please help extend it by two or three hours, that is until 3:30 p.m. or 4:30 p.m.

Extending farmer’s market hours will create the following positive outcomes.

First, farmers will sell more agricultural products to residents and visitors of the District of Columbia and receive more income.

Secondly, more income will allow farmers to create additional jobs in rural areas.

Currently, farmers do not have time to sell all the agricultural products they bring. Therefore, some of the products must be taken back. Unfortunately, these agricultural products will not last until next Sunday.

Some D.C. residents and visitors arrive at the farmer’s market around 1:30 p.m. and regret being late.

For comparison: the Eastern Market operates every Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Thank you.
