Visitor Parking Pass Program for ANC 2F?

VisitorParking

At ANC 2F’s October meeting, Councilman Jack Evans said that if the ANC passed a recommendation for a visitor parking pass in ANC 2F, he would ensure that it is implemented. The plan currently in place for Wards 1, 3, 4, 5, and parts of 6 provides for one pass per household. These passes are designed to allow guests of District residents to park for more than two hours on residential parking zoned streets. The passes are only valid during the hours of residential parking enforcement and in the same zone and ANC boundary as the residence where the pass was issued.

ANC 2F wants to know if there is interest in having a visitor parking program within the ANC and we want to hear from you! Please contact your local ANC commissioner (see list below) and plan to join us at the October Community Development meeting on Wednesday, October 23 at 7:00pm at the Washington Plaza Hotel.

Oct. 19 Neighborhood Crime Awareness Meet & Greet

Community awareness about crime is one of several factors that can help reduce the crime rate in our neighborhood. Therefore, ANC 2F and the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) are teaming up to host a Neighborhood Crime Awareness Meet-and-Greet outside Whole Foods this Saturday from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. to share information and tips to avoid becoming a crime victim.

Representatives from MPD and the ANC 2F Crime and Public Safety Committee will be on hand to answer the community’s questions about neighborhood crime. We’re fortunate that crime overall is falling in Logan Circle, and part of that success is due to our community being aware of simple precautions we can all take to prevent crime and avoid being a crime victim! With your help raising our community’s awareness, we can keep that trend going.

Stop by and learn how you can protect yourself and make our neighborhood safer this Saturday, take home some pamphlets, and get ANC 2F crime stats.

ANC 2F Rodent and Sanitation Education, Training, and Awareness Summit

Dear ANC 2F Residents and Business Owners:

Our neighborhood is more vibrant than ever with population growth and many new businesses attracting visitors and tourists.  Logan Circle is a tremendous success story, but with progress comes new problems.  One that we’re increasingly hearing about is the rodent population.

To proactively and collaboratively address this issue, the ANC 2F Alcohol Policy Committee invites you to attend the Rodent & Sanitation Education, Training and Awareness Summit on Thursday, October 17th at 7:00 p.m. at the Washington Plaza Hotel.

Representatives from the DC Department of Health, Department of Public Works, and Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA) will make presentations, followed by a Q&A and action planning session.  The tentative agenda is below:

  1. DOH Public Service DVD – 8 min
  2. Community Hygiene Program Overview – DOH 15 min
  3. Trash Compactors – 5 min
  4. DPW SWEEP/Enforcement – 10 minutes
  5. ABRA Complaint Process – 5 minutes
  6. Q&A/Action Planning – 45 minutes

DCist, the Washington Post, and Newschannel 8 have already covered the Summit.  We hope that you or a representative will make it a priority to attend this event.  Partnering and planning as a community can help us improve results as we tackle this problem.

Public Meeting Summary – October 2, 2013

OCt_2_Mtg
Thanks to everyone who was able to attend the regular monthly public meeting on October 2nd! For those of you who couldn’t make it, below is a brief summary.

SPECIAL SESSION: COMMUNITY DIALOGUE ON RECENT GUN VIOLENCE
Councilmember Jack Evans (Ward 2), kicked off the ANC meeting with a special session dedicated to discussion about the recent rash of gun-related violence in parts of ANC 2F. Evans noted that three separate incidents of gun violence occurred over the past several weeks in ANC 2F, and mentioned two additional crimes involving stun guns. Evans highlighted the dramatic progress that’s been made in reducing crime in our neighborhood over the past 10-20 years, and stressed that it today’s District there’s no room for crime of this nature. Evans invited Police Chief Cathy Lanier to discuss the MPD’s efforts in both investing these crimes and preventing future crimes.

Lanier shared that an arrest has been made related to one of the stun gun incidents, and that a victim in one of the shooting crimes is refusing to cooperate with police. Lanier also spoke to the various techniques and strategies employed by the MPD and the units under Third District Commander Kishter to prevent and address crime in the neighborhood, including the use of plainclothes officers; the periodic heightened presence of unformed officers and patrol cars; bicycle and Segway patrols; and various legal tools to prevent known criminals from returning to our neighborhoods. In response to attendee concerns about the absence of visible patrols and uniformed officer, Lanier and Kishter reiterated that their multi-pronged strategy to prevent and address crime was not always visible to community members due to the use of tactical units, plainclothes officers, and the activity of officers working night and early morning shifts when community members are often asleep.

Attendee questions and concerns also covered a range topics such as prostitution, public drunkenness, gambling, loitering, homelessness, youth gangs and criminals, daytime robberies, theft of mobile devices, auto vandalism and break-ins, and the perceived lack of follow-up by MPD detectives investigating certain crimes. Lanier promised to work with Commander Kishter to increase mountainbike and Segway patrols in the Third District; encouraged attendees to reach out to the Detective Captain (boss of all MPD detectives) about incidents of poor follow-through; and offered to return to future meetings to provide updates and address community concerns. Lieutenant Jeff Carroll, PSA 307, also spoke specifically to anti-prostitution efforts, recent arrests, the decrease in criminal activity in September over this time last year, and he provided tips for reducing the chance of being the victim of a robbery.
