Happy Monday, Borderstan. A few things on tap this week, with more to come during the week.

Street sweeping and $30 Parking Tickets. If you don’t move your car from a street-sweeping zone on the appropriate day, you will now be ticketed $30–starting today. Sweeping began again last Monday, but there was no ticketing last week.

Here’s a fun fact from DC Department of Public Works: “Street sweeping is a major component of the District’s efforts to control pollution from storm water runoff.  Routine street sweeping collects a range of pollutants like oil and grease, nitrogen and phosphorus, sediments, and trace metals. Nearly 40,000 pounds of oil and grease, and 3,000 pounds each of nitrogen and phosphorus are removed by street sweepers each month. Cleaning these pollutants off the streets keeps them from being washed into rivers and streams by rainfall.” So move your car and help save the environment.

ANC 1B meets Thursday. ANC1B will hold its regularly scheduled public meeting on Thursday, April 1, at 7 p.m. in the Second Floor Conference Room of the Reeves Center at 14th and U Streets NW. A large chunk of the U Street corridor and neighborhood is in ANC 1B. Agenda is online.

Learn how to do urban composting. Greater Goods on U Street is offering a class this Saturday, April 3, at 11 a.m. on urban composting.
