ANC6B Chair Chander Jayaraman: “In my conversations with neighbors since Wednesday night, I believe that there is a shared resolve within the whole community that more needs to be done to improve safety on our blocks. Mobile bright lights can provide temporary respite from our immediate fears, but it cannot address the underlying problem that people from outside of our neighborhood are using it to conduct illegal activities. We need to take back our block and it can happen if we demand action from our city agencies but also do our part through community policing. I welcome all neighbors to attend this important meeting…. I have invited Councilmember Charles Allen, Attorney General Karl Racine’s Office, and MPD to attend and hope that we have a large showing of neighbors to demonstrate our resolve.”

2nd & F Streets, NE – Micromobility Corral. As part of a new city-wide initiative, the District Department of Transportation would like to install a Micromobility Corral, a designated parking spot for bicycles and scooters, in the bollarded area on F Street at 2nd Street, NE. The intention behind installing designated parking for micromobility is to declutter sidewalks by providing bicycle and scooter parking. We are interested in your feedback on this proposal and encourage you to share this information with your constituents. The Capitol Hill BID helped select this location. Each corral will be able to accommodate six bicycles and approximately six scooters. DDOT anticipates this spot will provide a well-ordered parking area for dockless vehicles and increase access for pedestrians.
1st & K Street, NE – Proposed Capital Bikeshare Station
The District Department of Transportation is proposing to install a new 17-dock Capital Bikesharestation in your Advisory Neighborhood Commission on the southeast corner of 1st & K Streets, NE. This location was proposed and approved in 2014 but was not installed and DDOT wishes to pursue this station again. DDOT intends for this piece of public transportation infrastructure to bolster the existing network of stations in the NoMa neighborhood and believes this is a strong location.
