DDOT Hosting Parking Meeting for Georgetown
Georgetown and Burleith residents' input sought at public meeting Jan. 16.
The District Department of Transportation will host a public meeting for community input on parking in Georgetown and Burleith Jan. 16 at 6:30 p.m. at Hardy Middle School.
DDOT has been holding parking "think tanks" in every ward in the District, to "discuss the various parking related programs and policies" currently in place.
But the Georgetown Advisory Neighborhood Commission requested a meeting specifically for Georgetown and Burleith.
"We think our issues are somewhat more intensive and a little different," Commissioner Ron Lewis said.
According to a notice from the Citizens Association of Georgetown about the meeting:
"DDOT will give an overview of parking issues in the city and identify various tools and techniques that have been used, and then there will be break-out groups to focus on issues of specific interest, then a summation of the discussions. The emphasis will be on identifying the parking situations, issues, and priorities of all involved. Based on the discussions, DDOT will consider what the possible responses and options may be for the community."
The Jan. 16 meeting will run from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Hardy Middle School (1819 35th St. NW.)
