Putting the “Public” in Public Space
November 15, 7 to 9 PM, Hill Center, 921 Pennsylvania Ave. SE
A public panel will discuss the manner in which the District of Columbia both administers public space as well as the means in which it is transferred permanently or leased to the private realm. Is the current system of public space administration adequate? Should it be reformed? Should there be more citizen involvement analogous to what occurs in zoning matters?
Panelists include Charles Allen, Dave Alpert, Meredith Fascett, Matthew Marcou, and Nancy Metzger. CLICK HERE to download an event flier with more information.
On September 19th, the Arthur Capper Senior Building caught on fire and all residents have been evacuated and are staying at one of four hotels. Residents lost everything and are facing a host of issues to resolve. City Leaders have asked Capitol Hill Village to recruit individuals who would be willing to provide rides to seniors to doctors' appointments, to get groceries and to purchase new clothes and personal items.

DC’s Long Term Care Roadmap to 2028
CHV member Mary Procter and volunteer Elizabeth Cabot Nash presented the findings of their month’s long research and analysis of Long Term Care Options at the 2018 Annual Meeting of Leading Age DC on October 5th. The research brings together statistics about changing demographics in DC, an outline of future long term care needs and current resources (lack thereof) to match them and proposed a set of next steps questions. Procter and Nash are planning a series of presentations and a white paper to begin a multi-sector conversation about the issue.
Your Input is Still Needed on Electric Scooters and Dockless Bikes
DDOT recently extended the companies’ permits through December 2018. In early 2019, DDOT will complete review of public comments, along with the companies' input and data, and will recommend regulations to the Mayor. Yet rule-making that will shape decisions is already underway.
DDOT and other government agencies will benefit from hearing the ideas and opinions of older adults about the number of bikes and scooters to be allowed, as well as the rules that dockless companies will be expected to follow and who will educate users and non-users about requirements and public space. The October 2018 CHV News has an article explaining more about this issue, including the expansion of companies offering the profitable electric scooters.
The transition to a new IT system continues: CHV staff is in the process of learning and launching a new computer system. Please bear with us as we navigate this transition. Call the office at 202-543-1778 or email us at email@example.com.
