Highlights from our June ECA meeting have been posted.

Members voted to submit a proposed letter to Councilmember McDuffie, Chair of the D.C. Council Committee on Business and Economic Development,  seeking enhanced regulation of Go-Puff and other last-mile delivery services.

We also flagged a few ways Eckington residents can make a difference:

  • Eckington Day is returning October 1, 2022
    • Volunteers can sign up for the following activities by contacting Dana Samuels: dana.samuels@gmail.com:
      • Outreach to local businesses/potential sponsors
      • Outreach to local news outlets and others who can spread the word about the event
      • Helping to staff the event for part of the day on October 1.
  • DDOT is looking for someone in Ward 5 to join its recreational trails advisory committee. The committee only meets twice a year, but it’s a great opportunity to get involved if you use and love DC’s trails–including the Met. Branch Trail. Please email us if you’d like to learn more about this opportunity!

Our July meeting will be Monday, July 11, from 7:00 – 8:30. We’ll be hearing from three prospective grantees about proposed projects to promote air quality, traffic safety, and improved ecosystems. We hope you’ll join us!
