The new year is now upon us! And with that comes a new ANC term with several new commissioners across Adams Morgan.
Following a very busy 2022, I'm both grateful for what's led to this moment and excited for what's in store. There are many public works projects for DC agencies to complete! And I plan on urging them through completion.
Now let's look back at December 2022, glance toward January 2023, meet our organization + business in focus, and see this month's video briefing.
WHAT WE DID
Supported (6-0) a settlement agreement for Jesiree's Chop House & Lounge
These are voluntary agreements between community groups like the ANC and liquor vendors over the terms of their business operations
Represented ANC 1C at the December 2022 Adams Morgan Partnership BID board meeting
Received finalized plans for one-way conversions on Wyoming and Kalorama
DDOT has included speed bumps, as requested by myself and other commissioners
Once DDOT shares a timeline for installation I will alert neighbors
Spoke with local news outlets regarding two shootings that occurred mid-December
WHAT'S UP NEXT
January 4: ANC 1C general meeting (agenda here, link to attend here)
DGS leaf collection has begun cycle 2 throughout DC
You can track their progress via their interactive leaf tracker

This is a continuation of the project that replaced pipes on Wyoming and Kalorama in 2022
