From DNA President Miles Groves:
Please join us for this month’s DNA Meeting scheduled for Tuesday evening (7/14) at Calvary Baptist Church (833 8th Street NW) in the 2nd floor chapel. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. with PSA101W followed by a panel that will focus on the growing needs for urban parks and programming to support downtown residents and visitors. This includes our growing number of families with young children. The panel members need to hear what our needs are, since they are all decision makers or influencers that can impact our quality of life. This is a “must attend” meeting, especially if you have young children. So, please attend and bring your neighbors who have interest in family amenities.
Chinatown Cultural Development Strategy
The Chinatown Cultural Development Strategy Task Force has been meeting for several months. The electronic version of the Strategy and Key Recommendations are already available online for downloading:
One of the key recommendations concerned the creation of a market to serve the local community. As part of this recommendation, there is a task force focussed on the scope, location, and hours of operation. They need our assistance to aid better understanding of what we are interests are and what we would support. The Office of Planning has asked us to complete a survey. Here’s the Street Market Survey Link to send out to the DNA list serve:
Please take the time to complete the survey so that we have a sense of both neighborhood participation and the type of market that will gain our support. It will help if you can get this information distributed via your own list-serves so that we have as broad a reach as possible.
