Neighborhood Democracy

Hey, have you gone to your local ANC meeting lately?  Everyone should go at least once, in the interest of seeing the sausage made.  DC.gov even has a handy page where you can find your local ANC meeting calendar

R. went to 1C last night to hear the public safety report, after the hilarious attempted armed robbery on the street renamed two and a half years ago that wasn’t in the 911 system.  (But is now.)  And he wanted find out about plans to shut down the uptick in crime the past couple of weeks, but that will be at the Public Safety meeting on Friday.  The stats passed out last night show a 3x rise in assaults and a 5x rise in robbery with a gun in the last month, just in our little PSA.  Wow.

But there were good things, too.  Public art to be installed at 18th and Columbia.  It won’t affect the Kiosk, which is apparently the third rail of 1C politics.  And–bonus–SmartBikeDC is expanding into Adams Morgan.  Groovy!

The Kiosk

The Kiosk, surviving traffic lane construction with aplomb.
