Dupont residents will soon have the chance to learn more about what’s going on with Dupont Underground.
Kramerbooks & Afterwords Cafe (1517 Connecticut Ave NW) will host Dupont Underground‘s board of directors for an informational community meeting tomorrow at 6:30 p.m.
During the meeting, the underground art exhibit’s board of directors will share progress updates, general information and history related to the subterranean space.
The event will coincide with a talk from Nora Pouillon, who founded Dupont eatery Restaurant Nora and wrote the memoir, “My Organic Life.”
“It pairs together two Dupont-related discussions into one community event,” says Braulio Agnese, managing director at Dupont Underground.

A meeting held this week could be residents’ last chance to weigh in before the city allows the redevelopment of a parking lot at 8th and O Streets NW.
Representatives from the city will hear comments from the public tomorrow evening at 7 p.m. at the Immaculate Conception Church, located at 711 N Street, N.W.
The goal of the meeting is to determine whether the plot of land is “required for future public use.” Comments collected at the public meeting will be submitted to the D.C. Council for review.
As part of the redevelopment process, the property must be declared surplus by the D.C. Council. If the property is not found to be required for future public use, the redevelopment may move forward as planned.
The parking lot has been slated since last year to become a retail and residential development.
