The First District MPD 105 and 106 are currently looking for a host for their monthly public safety meetings. A new red light camera is being installed at the intersection of S. Capitol St. and M St. The officer said that there have been increased reports of gun shots in the area, but many of these incidents are likely fireworks.
Representatives from the Nationals, Under Armour, and the Cal Ripken Foundation made a presentation about the upgrade to Randall Park Field. The field will include a youth baseball diamond, soccer field, covered dugouts, backstop, synthetic turf, and bleachers.
Members of the ANC expressed concern regarding the street and alley closings at Buzzard Point, noting their frustration with DDOT operations and potential neighborhood safety issues.
Representatives of the International Spy Museum also gave a presentation, as the museum is hoping to move from its current location in Penn Quarter to a new building at L’Enfant Plaza. The representatives hope to bring in 600,000 to 700,000 visitors a year and stimulate activity at L’Enfant Plaza. Construction will begin this fall with planned opening in June 2016.
The ANC also issued letters of support for the Prevent Cancer 5k and Turkey Trot races.
