    We were out of town for the discussion on removing parking from 8th and A Streets SE. does anybody know what spots were to be removed and why?

  2. At the ANC6B Transportation Committee meeting Wednesday night, Chair Kirsten Oldenburg said that DDOT had received a request for an all-way stop at this corner and the elimination of parking had to do with a viability issue for cars coming down A Street. She said it was unclear who had requested the all-way stop. Oldenburg reported she had written to the staff at DDOT for info on how many spots would be lost, but had not received a response. The Committee voted to send a letter to DDOT stating that they didn’t have enough information to make a recommendation on this matter.
