On Wednesday, June 20 at 6:30 pm Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 2B is hosting a community meeting for residents and business owners to discuss public safety issues in the neighborhood. ANC 2B covers the Dupont Circle area.Â The meeting is at the DC Jewish Community Center, 16th and Q Streets NW.
Police and Transportation officials will be in attendance, as well as community leaders, elected representatives, and public safety liaisons.Â This is an opportunity to have your voices heard on concerns, issues, and ideas from neighborhood crime to pedestrian and bicycle safety â€” and for you to help inform and guide the city’s public safety agenda. Organizers explain that “It will not be an opportunity for blaming and alleging, but rather an opportunity have your concerns noted and discussed so that they can be addressed productively and collaboratively â€” if not at the meeting, at least in the near future.”
In addition to ANC 2B, the Urban Neighborhood Alliance, the Dupont Circle Citizens Association, Gays and Lesbians Opposing Violence and Historic Dupont Circle Main Streets helped to organize Wednesday night’s meeting.Â Senior representatives from the DC Department of Transportation, the DC Council, Metropolitan Police Department, Washington Area Bicyclists Association, and Gays and Lesbians Opposing Violence (GLOV) will be in attendance.
