Greetings, Central Shaw Neighbors:

Welcome to my fifth neighborhood dispatch. This week’s update:  Meeting Alert; Quick Updates; Other Topical Items; Local Biz Buzz.  Read on…

Meeting Alert!

·       ANC 6E meets tonightJune 1, 6:30p

Quick Updates

·      I hosted a 6E01 town hall on Thursday, May 13.  We discussed mostly issues of rats, trash, dumping; and traffic speeds and safety. 

·      MPD announced on May 27 the arrest of the suspect in the horrific May 18 shooting of mother and child on the 1500 block of 10th Street NW.

·      Also on May 27, I co-hosted a community walkthrough with DC government officials and concerned neighbors.  Folks from 6E01 plus Ward 1 and 2 gathered to express their concerns.  One key way to get our needs met is to get engaged and know how to ask for the tools you need to succeed.  I will include announcements of any follow-up activities in future updates here.

·      On May 29, I released a statement about the 9th street protected bike lane.  Protected bike lanes make our roadways safer for all users.
