City transportation officials have agreed to remove signs that allowed one-hour parking at a bus stop on McKinley Street NW approximately 100 feet west of Connecticut Avenue. The ANC requested the sign removal, saying the parked cars blocked the bus stop and a traffic lane needed to get into a popular neighborhood grocery store.
The D.C. Department of Public Works, with the support of the ANC, has proposed making Northampton Street one-way westbound from Chevy Chase Parkway to Connecticut Avenue. The public will have 30 days to comment on the proposal after a formal announcement is made in an upcoming issue of the D.C. Register, the city government's official publication.
The ANC has made the following grants: $500 each to three establishments that feed the needy: Martha's Table, at 2124 14th St. NW; Bread for the City, 1305 14th St. NW, and SOME (So That Others Might Eat), 71 O St. NW. Grants of $300 each were awarded to the Groom Center, a nonprofit family and child outpatient mental health clinic, on the grounds of Sibley Memorial Hospital, 522 Loughboro Rd. NW; to the Washington Free Clinic, a nonprofit health center, at 16th and Newton streets NW; and $700 was given to Friends of the Chevy Chase Library, which supports that public library located at 5625 Connecticut Ave. NW.
