should have posted about this earlier, but here it goes. meeting tonight, 7 p.m., at big bear with kwame brown (note to councilmember brown—you might want to update your website. it's not february 2008 anymore). here's the note from our south bloomingdale ANC man, stu:
This Monday, June 16th, we are having an informal get-together with Councilman Kwame Brown and local residents at the Big Bear Cafe.
Councilman Brown, our councilman at-large, is going to show up with members of the DC Committee on Economic Development to meet with neighbors and discuss local issues face-to-face.
There is a lot of development coming to the area -- NOMA to the south, the massive plans with the McMillan site and the old Soldier's Home to the north, Main Street Program funding for North Capitol and Rhode Island Ave to the east and west -- and many changes are going to take place.
This is a good opportunity for people to meet and discuss how we'd like to shape those changes, and how we'd like to see our neighborhood grow in the coming years.
We have a lot to look forward to.
We all hope you can make it.
