Streetcar Meeting Tonight - come support!

So it turns out that certain adjacent neighborhoods and some local organizations are advocating Against the streetcar alignment on MLK. Tonight there is a Ward 8 Streetcar meeting and we need you out there to vocally support this important project. I don't know about you, but this added connectivity is one of the reasons I moved to Anacostia to begin with.

Monday, November 2 from 7-8:30 P.M.
Savoy Elementary School
2400 Shannon Place, SE
the meeting will consist of display boards, maps, information about the proposed system, and opportunities for participants to speak individually with and ask questions of project team members. The open houses are open to the public, and no RSVP is necessary.

For further information, please visit or contact the project hotline at (703)682-5060.
Please go!

Hi! I am part of the pair that writes- Ezra's Coolest Couple (tongue and cheek reference to a recent WAPO discussion where he calls our neighborhoods, Mt. Pleasant and Mt. Vernon Square particularly 'cool'). We're planning on going to the Ward 8 Street Car meeting tonight as we want to see what is going on in the Ward that will SEE the street cars first. Driving out of the city a few weeks ago on Benning Road I started to see the track, VERY exciting! You can see our report on the Ward One meeting here:
