Highlights from the ECA’s November 8 meeting have been posted.

During the meeting, ECA members elected the following officers for the 2022 term: Conor Shaw (Pres.); Neil Shah (Treas.); Ben Cobert (Comms. Dir); and Daniel Agold, Taylor Kennedy, Dana Samuels, and Brandt Witt (VPs).

Members also voted to send this ECA letter to Eckington ANC Commissioners and DDOT in support of street safety requests in and near Eckington.

We also noted the following opportunities to help:

  • Please fill out this survey to help the NoMA BID explore potential options for a farmer’s market at Tanner Park.
  • Provide feedback on a draft letter asking for steps to improve Eckington’s tree canopy, including the need for more street tree boxes on neighborhood sidewalks. Eckington Parks and Arts will move this effort forward.
  • Provide feedback on draft bylaw amendment to create “officer emeritus” position (to be voted on at a future meeting – likely January). This position would allow for mentored handover of roles like treasurer and provide a mechanism for officers who are ready to pass the mantle but may have insights of value for incoming officers.

Additional updates from the ECA and our elected officials are included in the notes.
