Brookland Neighborhood Civic Assn. Takes On Neighborhood Traffic Issues

The Brookland Neighborhood Civic Association (BNCA) is making a push to address on going traffic issues in the neighborhood. Check out the link to a letter sent to the mayor and DDOT below, as well as info about their upcoming June meeting.  If you’re looking for ways to get involved in the Brookland community, the BNCA is a great way to do it.  From an email:

…here is our agenda for our June meeting, next Tuesday, June 20, at 7 pm at Brooks Mansion (701 Newton St. NE). I have invited Mayor Muriel Bowser and DDOT Director Leif Dormsjo to our meeting to discuss the serious truck and other traffic concerns that many in Brookland are being affected by. So far I have not received word that they will be able to attend. If they do not, we will use that time to have a community discussion about these problems and next steps for BNCA to address them.

You can see the letter I sent to the Mayor and DDOT Director last week here, which provides an overview of several ways in which DDOT has not been meeting our community’s needs….
