This event is a follow-up to the Dupont public safety forum held in June (Dupont Safety Forum: Homicides, Bikes, Smartphones, Bias Crimes).

Discussion topics at this listening and education session will include new bike lanes, rules and laws for street and sidewalk biking, and plans to make the District more bike and pedestrian friendly.

Representatives from a number of community and government organizations will be in attendance, including the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), the District Department of Transportation (DDOT), and the Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA). The Dupont Circle Citizens Association, the Logan Circle Citizens Association, and the Urban Neighborhood Alliance are also partnering with the ANCs to put on this event.

The bicycle safety meeting is being organized by ANC 2B (Dupont) Public Safety Liaisons Kishan Putta and Noah Smith and Chris Linn, the Chair of the ANC 2F (Logan) Crime and Public Safety Committee. For more information, contact Kishan Putta at [email protected].
