Be a Good Citizen

The ANC 2F meeting is tomorrow night. You can view the agenda here. There's nothing too exciting on the table, but it's always good to hear about public safety and DDOT issues.

Jim Graham is holding public round-table on the proposed taxi cab rates. If you want to be a party of the fray, the meeting will be held Thursday of this week at 2 p.m. in the Wilson Building council chambers (135o Pennsylvania Ave. NW). The scheduled time is clearly ridiculous, but some predict that the conversation will go well into the evening hours. Yes, you will be able to see it in the news and read about it in the papers the next day. But it would really be great if we could show our displeasure by packing the chamber with DC residents. Show up whenever you can.

Public hearings on the Metro fare increases are set to begin next week. Hearings will be held in DC on Wednesday, November 13th and Thursday, November 14th. The full hearing schedule can be found here.

Through November 19th, there will be a Ward 3 can food drive at the Chevy Chase Community Center.

Congrats to Knee Deep in Mud (perhaps too graphic for your office or your children) and Off Seventh for drawing attention to the continuing issues of prostitution and drugs throughout northwest. Though I don't think that their blogs were specifically mentioned, Fox 5 local news picked up the story. It's a bummer that this garbage still happens so flagrantly, but it's great that DC blogs are filling in reporting gaps that the newspapers and local TV don't cover.

that's the beauty of neighborhood blogs. it's a ground up view of the community.

And all too frequent "pants down" view, as well.
