WASHINGTON — The District of Columbia announced yesterday that it will issue up to $95 million of bonds to spur development in six district neighborhoods.

“Real economic development means encouraging investment in every part of the city, especially in places where the market might not otherwise go on its own,” Mayor Adrian Fenty said during a press conference yesterday. “This new program is going to pump millions of dollars into some of our most important commercial districts, creating new jobs, better amenities, and more vibrant places.”
