Last year, the Mayor designated August 22 – which was the late musician’s birthday – as "Chuck Brown Day" in the District. Earlier this year, the Mayor signed the Chuck Brown Park Designation Act of 2012 to name a park in honor of the man known as "The Godfather of Go-Go," and a section of Langdon Park was chosen for the tribute. The design includes a memorial wall encircling a new public plaza as well as outdoor toy drums that will link the memorial to an existing playground. The plaza can be used for entertainment, with surrounding grass for sitting or dancing. Other renovations to be made to the surrounding park include new benches, trash receptacles, more lighting and enhancements to the dog park. Renovations and improvements to the park and the adjacent Langdon Park Community Center have been ongoing since 2005.
The mayor's schedule is online and updated at midnight for the following day.
