Sweet Sound of Summer

Despite the end of the academic year, ANC 1C has had a full slate of issues to address. And in ANC 1C03, we've seen progress on several items following many months of effort. That includes one-way conversions to the 1800 blocks of Wyoming and Kalorama (both finalized in June).

As always, there is much work to be done. The summer months usually involve less strenuous meeting agendas for ANC 1C. I'll be taking advantage by following up on several neighborhood beautification and public safety issues that neighbors have discussed with me.

Just in time for the warmer months, the Jardín de las Mariposas (Butterfly Garden) in Kalorama Park has reached full bloom

Now let's revisit what took place in June 2023, look ahead to July 2023, meet our organization + business in focus, and see this month's video briefing.
