Help us get our story out. Truist bank is ignoring a live Court case, running over DC’s permitting process, and crushing our community’s wishes to keep our plaza as a public use easement. They were stopped on Wednesday from erecting fences illegally. They are here now trying again.
COME TO YOUR ADAMS MORGAN PLAZA! WITNESS RECORD SHAME SUNTRUST / TRUIST / THE CITY
At 4:30am on Friday September 24th, a full 2.5 hours before any permitted work is supposed to begin in the District of Columbia, Suntrust / Truist banksters rolled into the plaza and started tearing down posters, pulling tents, and throwing stuff around. Folks living at the plaza were startled from their sleep alerting the AdMoPlaza team about what was happening.
DC MPD cops were and still are on the scene and despite being informed that the permits the bank officials were showing them are old, revoked, and not applicable. Cops on the scene said that the big boys & girls downtown (aka Councilmember Brianne Nadeau and Mayor Muriel Bowser) said everything is good to go. The community corner has been cornered in as of 5:30am, Friday Sep 24.
There is still a live pending Court case that will decide the future of this plaza.
